Issue #7019 has been updated by drbrain (Eric Hodel).


I don't know why you would expect this to work, private, public, etc. are methods on Module and your context is not a subclass of Module.

Why should we pollute every object with a new methods privately, publicly and protectedly (which isn't a word)?

Feature #7019: allow `private` and `protected` keywords to take blocks

I like to indent my private methods one level deeper, but this indentation is inconsistent with the syntax:

 class C
   def f
     #
   end
   private
     def g
     #
     end
 end

I think it would be nice if the (({private})) keyword could take a block, then i would write:

 class C
   def f
     #
   end
   private do
     def g
     #
     end
   end 
 end
=end
