Issue #5628 has been updated by Thomas Sawyer.

Then might as well add mod.lastname too. If the implementation is anything like the pure-Ruby one, it is more efficient to have a dedicated method. And I much prefer the shorter syntax. If not #lastname then maybe #modname.

Feature #5628: Module#basename

Something I use fairly often:

    some_module.name.split("::").last

It's useful for things like factory methods. It would be much nicer if we had:

    class Module
      def basename
        name.split("::").last
      end
    end
