Around

Redefine existing methods while calling their previous version by another name.

Similar to Rails's alias_method_chain, but without all the boilerplate.

Usage

require 'around'

Array.def_around(:map, :eval_str) do |eval_s = nil, &block|
  !eval_s ^ !block or raise ArgumentError, "Must provide either eval_s or block."
  block ||= lambda { |_| eval(eval_s, binding) }
  map_without_eval_str &block
end

puts [1, 2, 3].map("_ * 2").join(", ")  # => 2, 4, 6
