class Object
  # Invokes the method identified by the symbol +method+, passing it any arguments
  # and/or the block specified, just like the regular Ruby <tt>Object#send</tt> does.
  #
  # *Unlike* that method however, a +NoMethodError+ exception will *not* be raised
  # and +nil+ will be returned instead, if the receiving object is a +nil+ object or NilClass.
  #
  # ==== Examples
  #
  # Without try
  # @person && @person.name
  # or
  # @person ? @person.name : nil
  #
  # With try
  # @person.try(:name)
  #
  # +try+ also accepts arguments and/or a block, for the method it is trying
  # Person.try(:find, 1)
  # @people.try(:collect) {|p| p.name}
  #--
  # This method definition below is for rdoc purposes only. The alias_method call
  # below overrides it as an optimization since +try+ behaves like +Object#send+,
  # unless called on +NilClass+.
  def try(method, *args, &block)
    send(method, *args, &block)
  end
