Ruby Delete Prefix

Today I was working with a Ruby method that deletes the prefix from a string, turning --code into code. While there are several ways to get this done, a handy Ruby feature I discovered today is delete_prefix:

> "--code".delete_prefix("--")
=> "code"

Intention-revealing and very Ruby.
