Issue #7981 has been reported by mpapis (Michal Papis).

----------------------------------------
Backport #7981: ruby does not respect --
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7981

Author: mpapis (Michal Papis)
Status: Open
Priority: Low
Assignee: 
Category: 
Target version: 


in `ruby --help` I have found:

    Usage: ruby [switches] [--] [programfile] [arguments]

so I have tried this example:

    $ echo 'puts :ok' | ruby -- --params
    > ruby: No such file or directory -- --params (LoadError)

I have assumed that `[argumments]` are independent from `[programfile]`

In the current state of code the help message should be:

    Usage: ruby [switches] [--] [programfile [arguments]]

But I would prefer that it would be fixed and anything after `[--]` that is not program gets ignored, so we can use the shell style:

    $ echo 'echo "args:$*:"' | bash -s -- --params
    > args:--params:
