Inspect Method

Hey everybody! I'm new to programming and to Ruby and still don´t get what the method ".inspect" stands for and when to use it.

Thanks for any replies!

Use Ruby's inspect method to view the raw contents of a hash or string. (the keys and/or values)
Here it is in the documentation: http://ruby-doc.org/core-2.3.0/Array.html#method-i-inspect
