Comments on "changes.1.8.0"

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Gavin Sinclair, Aug 4, 2003.

  1. The changes.1.8.0 file mentioned when 1.8.0 was announced is an
    important document. Therefore, I've read it carefully and made the
    comments below (fortunatly not many). I've also looked at gaps in
    'ri' with reference to it, and updated
    http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?RIOnePointEight

    BTW changes.1.8.0 does not appear to be in CVS. Why not?

    Cheers,
    Gavin



    The following text is unlikely to be current. Surely the behaviour is fixed
    by now.

    : Array#sort!

    Changed to always return self without checking whether the sequence
    of the elements was modified or not.

    Beware that this behavior is not guaranteed to continue in the
    future. Do not rely on its return value. [ruby-dev:12506]

    Should this be Enumerable#zip ?

    : Array#zip

    added.

    This is redundant; rstrip and lstrip are mentioned together elsewhere. It's
    incorrect as well, I think, as it mentions only NULs.

    : String#rstrip

    chop off NULs at the end of strings.
