    ReQL command: without

    Command syntax

    sequence.without([selector1, selector2...]) → stream

    array.without([selector1, selector2...]) → array

    singleSelection.without([selector1, selector2...]) → object

    object.without([selector1, selector2...]) → object

    Description

    The opposite of pluck; takes an object or a sequence of objects, and returns them with the specified fields or paths removed.

    Example: Since we don’t need it for this computation we’ll save bandwidth and leave out the list of IronMan’s romantic conquests.

    r.table("marvel").get("IronMan").without("personalVictoriesList").run(conn);
    

    Example: Without their prized weapons, our enemies will quickly be vanquished.

    r.table("enemies").without("weapons").run(conn);
    

    Example: Nested objects can be used to remove the damage subfield from the weapons and abilities fields.

    r.table("marvel").without(
        r.hashMap("weapons", r.hashMap("damage", true))
         .with("abilities", r.hashMap("damage", true))
    ).run(conn);
    

    Example: The nested syntax can quickly become overly verbose so there’s a shorthand for it.

    r.table("marvel")
     .without(r.hashMap("weapons", "damage").with("abilities", "damage")).run(conn);
