Issue #16091 has been updated by chrisseaton (Chris Seaton).


@thiaguerd I don't understand - the `String#replace` method only takes one argument - you're calling it with two so that's not going to work for a start. Secondly, the method doesn't replace occurrences of one string with another, which is what I think you think it does. It replaces the whole string with another string.

https://ruby-doc.org/core-2.6.3/String.html#method-i-replace

So your code doesn't work because that's just not what this method does or is documented to do in Ruby.
