Issue #6180 has been updated by trans (Thomas Sawyer).


The only problem with that is that Ruby defines #nil? which is a strict check for NilClass instance. Hence #true? and #false? make more sense doing the same for TrueClass and FalseClass.

Feature #6180: to_b for converting objects to a boolean value

When a boolean return value is required it has become common practice is to use "!!" to convert the object. It would be more consistent to provide a "to_b" method on Object.
