Issue #8975 has been updated by zzak (Zachary Scott).


Thanks for the report Andrew!

I'm really glad we got a doc bug reported for TestUnit, this confirms my suspicion that people are still using TU for legacy apps and still need accurate documentation.

I will have to reconsider how we document TU..

Bug #8975: Confusing code sample for assert_send
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8975#change-42211

Author: agrimm (Andrew Grimm)
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: zzak (Zachary Scott)
Category: doc
Target version: 
ruby -v: ruby 2.0.0p247 (2013-06-27 revision 41674) [x86_64-linux]
Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


Test::Unit::Assertsions#assert_send has the code sample

    assert_send([[1, 2], :member?, 1]) # -> pass
    assert_send([[1, 2], :member?, 4]) # -> fail

Having an array within an array is somewhat confusing. When I first read it, I ignored the extra square brackets. A less confusing example would be

    assert_send(["Hello world", :include?, "Hello"]) # -> pass
    assert_send(["Hello world", :include?, "Goodbye"]) # -> fail
