"rb" before a line of example code

what does the rb means in the example?

Knowing this, we can write a smarter loop than the one above: rb i = 0 loop do i += 1 print "#{i}" break if i > 5 end

Hi @preteritar7544249898!

That seems to be a mistake where instead of specifying the language for the code format, it just adds it to the text.

This is obviously a bug and I will report it to the help desk. Thanks for noticing!

Don’t hesitate to tell me if you find it! This bug is super annoying for people trying to learn Ruby and I really appreciate you taking the time to find them.

Hi Steven, couldn’t find the first one.
But there’s another one here (on the hint section)

I found another reference to “rb” here and it confused me while I was trying to understand the syntax - https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-ruby/lessons/thith-meanth-war/exercises/setting-up-the-if-branch-part--1

@stevencopeland I’ve made my way through most of the Ruby track and took note of instances where I continued to find rb:

Hope this helps!
