What's In This Fork?

I'm forking Michael's gem because I want to give it a more idiomatically Ruby style. Will this happen? We'll see!

Description

A Smalltalk-like Method Finder for Ruby. Provided with a receiver, a desired result and possibly some arguments, it will list all methods that produce the result when called on the receiver with the arguments.

Usage

>> Methodfinder.find(10,1,3)
=> [:%, :<=>, :>>, :[], :modulo, :remainder]
>> MethodFinder.find("abc","ABC")
=> [:swapcase, :swapcase!, :upcase, :upcase!]
>> MethodFinder.find(10,100,2)
=> [:**]
>> MethodFinder.find(['a','b','c'],['A','B','C']) { |x| x.upcase }
=> [:collect, :collect!, :map, :map!]

Todo

  • Redirect stdout and stderr to a StringIO object instead of /dev/null unless someone tells me that the latter works on Windows.
  • Maybe add some sort of method blacklist so they won’t get tried in the block.

Thanks

  • Matthem Lucas for packaging it as a gem.
