Issue #7994 has been updated by alexeymuranov (Alexey Muranov).


Marc-Andre, thanks for the idea, i did not realize that `each_with_index` works with all enumerables.

However i was hoping that something like `unless iteration.first?` could be some day optimized away by a compiler to not check on every iteration.  I also do not see right away an incompatibility introduced by my second proposal (about the original one you are right).

I think it would be nice to be able to write something like this:

  items.each do |item|
    unless iteration.first?
      # do something that is not applicable to the first iteration
    end
    # do whatever is to be done to all items
  end
=end
