RSpec Expectations 3.2
rspec-expectations is used to define expected outcomes.

expect(actual).to matcher(expected) expect(actual).not_to matcher(expected)

specific features you'd like to see added, find the existing documentation
incomplete or confusing, or, better yet, wish to write a missing Cucumber
feature yourself, please submit an issue or a pull request.
