Official content
Splits str using the supplied parameter as the record separator ($/ by default), passing each substring in turn to the supplied block. If a zero-length record separator is supplied, the string is split into paragraphs delimited by multiple successive newlines.
If chomp is true, separator will be removed from the end of each line.
If no block is given, an enumerator is returned instead.
"hello\nworld".each_line {|s| p s}
# prints:
#   "hello\n"
#   "world"

"hello\nworld".each_line('l') {|s| p s}
# prints:
#   "hel"
#   "l"
#   "o\nworl"
#   "d"

"hello\n\n\nworld".each_line('') {|s| p s}
# prints
#   "hello\n\n"
#   "world"

"hello\nworld".each_line(chomp: true) {|s| p s}
# prints:
#   "hello"
#   "world"

"hello\nworld".each_line('l', chomp: true) {|s| p s}
# prints:
#   "he"
#   ""
#   "o\nwor"
#   "d"
