Issue #18276 has been reported by ko1 (Koichi Sasada).

----------------------------------------
Feature #18276: `Proc#bind_call(obj)` same as `obj.instance_exec(..., &proc_obj)`
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/18276

* Author: ko1 (Koichi Sasada)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
----------------------------------------
`Proc#bind_call(obj)` same as `obj.instance_exec(..., &proc_obj)`

```ruby
proc_obj = proc{|params...| ...}
obj.instance_exec(params..., &proc_obj)
```

is frequent pattern.

```
$ gem-codesearch 'instance_exec.+\&' | wc -l
9558
```

How about to introduce new method `Proc#bind_call`?

```ruby
class Proc
  def bind_call obj, *args
    obj.instance_exec(*args, &self)
  end
end

pr = ->{ p self }
pr.bind_call("hello") #=> "hello"
pr.bind_call(nil)     #=> nil
```

It is similar to `UnboundMethod#bind_call`.

----

My motivation;

I want to solve shareable Proc's issue https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/18243 and one idea is to prohibit `Proc#call` for shareable Proc's, but allow `obj.instance_exec(&pr)`. To make shortcut, I want to introduce `Proc#bind_call`.

`UnboundProc` is another idea, but I'm not sure it is good idea...

Anyway, we found that there are many usage of `instance_exec(&proc_obj)`, so `Proc#bind_call` is useful not for Ractors.
