Issue #9123 has been updated by BertramScharpf (Bertram Scharpf).


=begin

You did not only change the source code, but you also
removed an application example I admire for its beauty:

    a = %w(z Bb bB bb BB a aA Aa AA A)
    b = a.sort {|a,b| (a.downcase <=> b.downcase).nonzero? || a <=> b }
    b   #=> ["A", "a", "AA", "Aa", "aA", "BB", "Bb", "bB", "bb", "z"]

I wonder how you manage not to notice anything about the impertinence of
your proposal.

Feature #9123: Make Numeric#nonzero? behavior consistent with Numeric#zero?

Numeric#zero? returns true or false, while Numeric#nonzero? returns self or nil.

I've written a patch that fixes this inconsistency and adds a Numeric#nonzero (non-predicate) method that returns self or nil for chaining comparisons. I'd like for this to be included in Ruby 2.1.0.
