Rails Views [confused by guide]
I've been confused by the following lines:
<td><%= link_to 'Show', book %></td>
<td><%= link_to 'Edit', edit_book_path(book) %></td>
<td><%= link_to 'Remove', book, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :delete %></td>
what is 'edit_book_path(book)' defined? Can you possibly explain what that means? Does it look at the controller 'book' and check the controller method 'edit' while passing in the variable book?
<%= link_to 'Show', book %>? Is it go to the controller method 'show'? Or display 'show'? Is 'book' the passed on variable?
