**month**() Link

**months**() Link

Enables the use of time calculations and declarations, like 45.minutes + 2.hours + 4.years.

These methods use Time#advance for precise date calculations when using from_now, ago, etc. as well as adding or subtracting their results from a Time object. For example:

# equivalent to Time.now.advance(:months => 1) 1.month.from_now # equivalent to Time.now.advance(:years => 2) 2.years.from_now # equivalent to Time.now.advance(:months => 4, :years => 5) (4.months + 5.years).from_now

While these methods provide precise calculation when used as in the examples above, care should be taken to note that this is not true if the result of `months', `years', etc is converted before use:

# equivalent to 30.days.to_i.from_now 1.month.to_i.from_now # equivalent to 365.25.days.to_f.from_now 1.year.to_f.from_now

In such cases, Ruby's core Date and Time should be used for precision date and time arithmetic

Also aliased as: month

**multiple_of?**(number) Link

Check whether the integer is evenly divisible by the argument.

0.multiple_of?(0) #=> true 6.multiple_of?(5) #=> false 10.multiple_of?(2) #=> true

**ordinalize**() Link

Ordinalize turns a number into an ordinal string used to denote the position in an ordered sequence such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th.

1.ordinalize # => "1st" 2.ordinalize # => "2nd" 1002.ordinalize # => "1002nd" 1003.ordinalize # => "1003rd" -11.ordinalize # => "-11th" -1001.ordinalize # => "-1001st"

**year**() Link
