## Basic structure
The basic structure of an rspec expectation is:
- actual.should matcher(expected)
- actual.should_not matcher(expected)
+ expect(actual).to matcher(expected)
+ expect(actual).not_to matcher(expected)
-## `should` and `should_not`
+Note: You can also use `expect(..).to_not` instead of `expect(..).not_to`.
+ One is an alias to the other, so you can use whichever reads better to you.
-`rspec-expectations` adds `should` and `should_not` to every object in
-the system. These methods each accept a matcher as an argument. This allows
-each matcher to work in a positive or negative mode:
+#### Examples
- 5.should eq(5)
- 5.should_not eq(4)
+ expect(5).to eq(5)
+ expect(5).not_to eq(4)
## What is a matcher?
