Issue #7292 has been updated by newmen (Gleb Averchuk).


I think this is very cool feature, because I'm tired of writing something like this:

some_hash = Hash[some_hash.map { |k, v| [k, (v * scale).to_i] }]

)=

Feature #7292: Enumerable#to_h
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7292#change-37569

Category: core
Target version: next minor


Now that #to_h is the official method for explicit conversion to Hash, we should also add

	Enumerable#to_h: Returns a hash for the yielded key-value pairs.

	  [[:name, 'Joe Smith'], [:age, 42]].to_h # => {name: 'Joe Smith', age: 42}


With the Ruby tradition of succint documentation I suggest the documentation talk about key-value pairs and there is no need to be explicit about the uninteresting cases like:

    (1..3).to_h           # => {1 => nil, 2 => nil, 3 => nil}
    [[1, 2], [1, 3]].to_h # => {1 => 3}
    [[1, 2], []].to_h     # => {1 => 2, nil => nil}

I see some reactions of people reading about the upcoming 2.0 release like this one:
