Matz,

> I agree with removing string concatenation in 3.0.

Okay.  Then, is the syntax deprecated in 2.0?
If so, it would be good to warn it.

Rodorigo,

> Yusuke, am I supposed to understand what you meant with the code in your last comment? If so, I didn't get it...

Sorry for the confusion.  The code is just a joke.
I can write such a code much easily without the syntax.

Feature #6265: Remove 'useless' 'concatenation' syntax
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6265#change-25734

Author: rosenfeld (Rodrigo Rosenfeld Rosas)

Priority: Normal
Assignee: mame (Yusuke Endoh)

Target version: 3.0


What is wrong with this code:

some_method 'argument1', 'argument2' 'argument3'

Yes, the missing colon, but it is not always easy to notice that...

What is this ('concatenation' 'syntax') useful for?

Why writing ('some ' 'concatenation') instead of 'some concatenation'?

A missing colon between string arguments can lead to some bugs that may be hard to find, specially if the arguments are optional.

And I can't see any useful case where this allowed syntax for concatenation would help.
