Ruby: Enumerable#partition

If you want to sort values from an enumerable into two arrays based on whether they match a certain criteria or not, Enumerable#partition Archive can come in handy.

# Enumerable#partition returns two arrays, # the first containing the elements of enum # for which the block evaluates to true, # the second containing the rest. (1..6).partition { |v| n.even? } #=> [[2, 4, 6], [1, 3, 5]]

Works well with destructuring assignment, too.

even, odd = (1..6).partition { |n| n.even? } even #=> [2, 4, 6] odd #=> [1, 3, 5]
