Hash#each is an alias for Hash#each_pair.
Calls the given block with each key-value pair; returns self:
h = {foo: 0, bar: 1, baz: 2}
h.each_pair {|key, value| puts "#{key}: #{value}"} # => {:foo=>0, :bar=>1, :baz=>2}
Output:
foo: 0
bar: 1
baz: 2
Returns a new Enumerator if no block given:
h = {foo: 0, bar: 1, baz: 2}
e = h.each_pair # => #<Enumerator: {:foo=>0, :bar=>1, :baz=>2}:each_pair>
h1 = e.each {|key, value| puts "#{key}: #{value}"}
h1 # => {:foo=>0, :bar=>1, :baz=>2}
Output:
foo: 0
bar: 1
baz: 2
