Issue #3595 has been updated by Dreamcat Four.


And lets face it, if Encoding::BINARY were its own seperate encoding that shouldnt really hurt anybody. Given the definition of what binary data is. If a ruby programmer wants to continue using 8-Bit Ascii strings that shouldn't get broken. Looking at it from that (my) perspective theres not really much of an obvious downside.

You should only ever display a BINARY encoded string with String#force_encoding() IMHO.
