Add basic assertions to core_ext

Reported by Nathan Wilmes | May 6th, 2008 @ 12:54 AM

The following patch defines a bunch of convenience assertions for general testing purposes. We've got assert_contains, assert_does_not_contain, assert_empty, assert_false/true (aliases), assert_array_contents_match, assert_includes (alias), assert_does_not_include (alias), and assert_not_contains (alias)

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    We used to have a very full-fledged set of assets, but cut them down because the value they offered wasn't worth the hassle of trying to figure out when to use what. assert array.empty?, "shouldn't be empty" works just as well as assert_empty, imo.
