    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 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({:weapons => {:damage => true}, :abilities => {:damage => true}}).run(conn)
    

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

    r.table('marvel').without({:weapons => :damage, :abilities => :damage}).run(conn)
