Description

return_bang implements non-local exits for methods. As a bonus, you also get exception handling that ignores standard Ruby's inflexible begin; rescue; ensure; end syntax.

Use return_bang to exit back to a processing loop from deeply nested code, or just to confound your enemies and your friends! What could possibly go wrong?

Features

  • Implements non-local exits for methods

  • Nestable

  • Named and stack-based exit points, go exactly where you need to be

  • Full exception handling support through raise!, rescue! and ensure!

  • Ignores pesky ensure, rescue and require blocks for when you really, really need to return

Problems

  • Not enough use of continuations

Synopsis

require 'return_bang/everywhere'

def some_method
  deeply_nested
  # never reached
end

def deeply_nested
  return!
end

return_here do
  some_method
end
# resumes here
