Issue #7031 has been updated by david_macmahon (David MacMahon).


Well, what's done is done.  One cannot put the toothpaste back in the tube.  It looks like "wew" (William Webber, I presume) documented all of the non-private  lib/date.rb methods in 2003 (see r4435).  Prior to that it appears all undocumented and all non-nodoc.  On the bright side, I have learned a couple of new "best practices" from this:

1. Never put debug/test methods in files that end up on $LOAD_PATH.  These methods can be added as needed from files that do not end up on $LOAD_PATH.

2. Always mark "internal use" methods as private, protected, and/or nodoc as applicable.

Thanks for all your work on Ruby!!!

Bug #7031:  Date::mjd_to_jd disappeared
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7031#change-29503

Author: Anonymous
Status: Rejected
Priority: Low
Assignee: tadf (tadayoshi funaba)
Category: lib
Target version: 
ruby -v: -


 I've migrated almost all of my Ruby code from Ruby 1.8 to 1.9 (finally!).  Most things went pretty smoothly, but I recently came across a script of mine that uses Date::mjd_to_jd.  This method, along with several other Date methods, seems to have disappeared from Ruby as of r31668.  I didn't see any discussion of these methods in the commit logs nor could I find anything about them on the web or ruby mailing list archives.  Are there replacement methods for these that I should be using instead?  Was there a reason for removing these methods that I should be aware of before monkey patching them back in?  Am I missing something?
 
 Thanks,
 Dave
