Issue #6284 has been updated by marcandre (Marc-Andre Lafortune).


+1 for #*

The symbol used in mathematics for function composition is a circle (???); the arrows are for the definitions of functions (like lambdas) only, so #<- or whatever make no sense to me.

Finally, the f ??? g(x) is defined as f(g(x)), so there is no argument there either.

Feature #6284: Add composition for procs

It would be nice to be able to compose procs like functions in functional programming languages:

    to_camel = :capitalize.to_proc
    add_header = ->val {"Title: " + val}

    format_as_title = add_header << to_camel << :strip

instead of:

    format_as_title = lambda {|val| "Title: " + val.strip.capitalize }


It's pretty easy to implement in pure ruby:

  class Proc
    def << block
      proc { |*args| self.call( block.to_proc.call(*args) ) }
    end
  end
=end
