not Keyword in Ruby

  • Last Updated : 27 Jul, 2020

The keyword “not” is different from the others. The “not” keyword gets an expression and inverts its boolean value – so given a true condition it will return false. It works like “!” operator in Ruby, the only difference between “and” keyword and “!” operator is  “!” has the highest precedence of all operators, and “not” one of the lowest.

Syntax:

not expression

Example 1:

Ruby




# Ruby program to illustrate not keyword
uname = "geeks"
  
# Using not keyword
if not(uname == "Geeks" )
puts "Incorrect username!"
else  
puts "Welcome, GeeksforGeeks!"
end

 



Output:

Incorrect username!

Example 2: 

 

Ruby




# Ruby program to illustrate not keyword
uname = "Geek"
password = "Wel123"
number = 123
if not(uname == "Geek" && 
       password == "Wel123" &&
       number == 123)
puts "Hey, Incorrect Credentials"
else
  puts "Welcome to GeeksforGeeks"  
end

 

Output:

Welcome to GeeksforGeeks
