Documentation

The Cucumber features are the most comprehensive and up-to-date docs for end-users.

The RDoc provides additional information for contributors and/or extenders.

All of the documentation is open source and a work in progress. If you find it lacking or confusing, you can help improve it by submitting requests and patches to the rspec-expectations issue tracker.

Install

gem install rspec               # for rspec-core, rspec-expectations, rspec-mocks
gem install rspec-expectations  # for rspec-expectations only

Matchers

Matchers are objects used to compose expectations:

result.should eq("this value")

In that example, eq("this value") returns a Matcher object that compares the actual result to the expected "this value".
