How do I move an element of an array one place up/down with Ruby

Let's say I have this array

array = ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd'] 

What is a good way to target an element (for example 'b') and switch it with the next element in line (in this case 'c') so the outcome becomes:

=> ['a', 'c', 'b', 'd'] 


array[1], array[2] = array[2], array[1] array #=> ["a", "c", "b", "d"] 

or

array[1, 2] = array.values_at(2, 1) array #=> ["a", "c", "b", "d"]
