Issue #7676 has been updated by simonrussell (Simon Russell).


This isn't just Float::NAN, actually; as Charlie's patch shows, it's actually any object that always returns false from ==

1.9.3p125 :001 > class X
1.9.3p125 :002?>   def ==(other)
1.9.3p125 :003?>     false
1.9.3p125 :004?>   end
1.9.3p125 :005?> end
 => nil 
1.9.3p125 :006 > x = X.new
 => #<X:0x00000000ba1648> 
1.9.3p125 :007 > x == x
 => false 
1.9.3p125 :008 > [x] == [x]
 => true 

Is this desirable behaviour?

Bug #7676: Comparison of Float::NAN in array behaves unexpectedly

It seems that two arrays containing Float::NAN will be considered equal ([Float::NAN] == [Float::NAN]), despite the fact that Float::NAN != Float::NAN.

Tested and reproduced in 1.8.7p371, 1.9.3p362, 2.0.0preview2. (This bug can be reproduced in Ruby 1.8 as well.)  Results below.

1.8.7 p371
---------

1.8.7 :001 > nan = 0.0/0.0
 => NaN 
1.8.7 :002 > nan == nan
 => false 
1.8.7 :003 > [nan] == [nan]
 => true 

1.9.3 p362
---------

1.9.3p362 :001 > Float::NAN == Float::NAN
 => false 
1.9.3p362 :002 > [Float::NAN] == [Float::NAN]
 => true 

2.0.0 preview2
--------------

2.0.0dev :001 > Float::NAN == Float::NAN
 => false 
2.0.0dev :002 > [Float::NAN] == [Float::NAN]
 => true
