Issue #5628 has been updated by trans (Thomas Sawyer).


You are right about name, it would have to be something else besides #basename.

Yehuda Katz said he would probably be ok with `mod.modules.last.name`, to which I commented, we may as well add `mod.lastname`.

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
