Issue #6717 has been updated by alexeymuranov (Alexey Muranov).

If nobody has anything interesting to say about this, the issue can be closed, as i think (({tap})) works fine here, even in:

 hash = {}.tap { |h| h.tap { |hh| hh[1] = 2 } }   # => {1=>2}

"Tap" just sounded strange to me in this use case. I wanted something like (({instance_eval})) that (1) returns self and (2) can only call public methods.

((*rosenfeld*)), what did you mean by "won't be suitable for nested tweak calls"?

Feature #6717: Method like #instance_eval that returns self (like #tap)

How about adding a method that acts like (({#instance_eval})), but returns (({self}))?

Call it (({Object#instance_tap})) for example, or (({Object#tweak!})):

 class Object
   def tweak!(*args, &block)
     instance_eval(*args, &block); self
   end
 end

This can be used to initialize a hash.  Instead of:

 room_numbers = (1..10).each_with_object({}) { |n, o| o[n] = 100 + n }

one would write:

 room_numbers = {}.tweak! { (1..10).each { |n| self[n] = 100 +n } }

Googling for this kind of method gave me this:
