Bug #5752: Array#delete_if side effects due to changeset r32360
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5752

Author: Thomas Leitner
Status: Open
Priority: Normal

Category: core
Target version: 1.9.3
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.3p0 (2011-10-30 revision 33570) [x86_64-linux]


It seems that the changeset r32360 introduced another side effect. Here are two IRB sessions, one in ruby-1.9.2-p136 and the other in ruby-1.9.3-p0:

ruby-1.9.2-p136 :001 > x = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]
 => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] 
ruby-1.9.2-p136 :002 > x.delete_if {|i| i == x[i-1]}
 => [] 

ruby-1.9.3-p0 :001 > x = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]
 => [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] 
ruby-1.9.3-p0 :002 > x.delete_if {|i| i == x[i-1]}
 => [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] 

If this is indeed the intended behaviour, it should probably be documented clearly that the array is changed instantly every time the block is called and not after the iteration is over.
