Issue #9605 has been updated by Alex Rothenberg.


@nobu I meant to tell you how honored I am that you and matz are taking so much time talking about this issue and even considering changing this small corner of ruby itself. The idea of changing the language because of something I noticed does feel a little intimidating to me though :) 

Thank you for all your hard work building this language I love and let me know if there's anything more I can do to help with this issue.

Bug #9605: Chaining "each_with_index.detect &lambda" raises ArgumentError

I found an odd edge case where "detect" and "select" behave differently from other methods of Enumerable.

Normally these methods yield a single argument to a block but when you chain them after "each_with_index" they yield two arguments "item" and "index". The problem is when you try passing a lambda instead of a block then they raise an ArgumentError

    $ irb
    2.1.1 :001 > lambda = ->(word, index) { word.length == 3 }
    => #<Proc:0x007ff8848630d8@(irb):1 (lambda)>
    2.1.1 :002 > %w(Hi there how are you).each_with_index.detect &lambda
    ArgumentError: wrong number of arguments (1 for 2)
    from (irb):1:in `block in irb_binding'
    from (irb):2:in `each'
    from (irb):2:in `each_with_index'
    from (irb):2:in `each'
    from (irb):2:in `detect'
    from (irb):2
    from /Users/alex/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.1.1/bin/irb:11:in `<main>'

    2.1.1 :003 > %w(Hi there how are you).each_with_index.select &lambda
    ArgumentError: wrong number of arguments (1 for 2)
    from (irb):1:in `block in irb_binding'
    from (irb):3:in `each'
    from (irb):3:in `each_with_index'
    from (irb):3:in `each'
    from (irb):3:in `select'
    from (irb):3
    from /Users/alex/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.1.1/bin/irb:11:in `<main>'

Interestingly it works just find when calling other methods like "map"

    2.1.1 :004 > %w(Hi there how are you).each_with_index.map &lambda
    => [false, false, true, true, true]

It also works when you use a proc

    2.1.1 :001 > proc = Proc.new {|word, index| word.length == 3 }
    => #<Proc:0x007fc375a3a558@(irb):1>
    2.1.1 :002 > %w(Hi there how are you).each_with_index.detect &proc
    => ["how", 2]
    2.1.1 :003 > %w(Hi there how are you).each_with_index.map &proc
    => [false, false, true, true, true]

or a block

    2.1.1 :001 > %w(Hi there how are you).each_with_index.detect {|word, index| word.length == 3 }
    => ["how", 2]
    2.1.1 :002 > %w(Hi there how are you).each_with_index.map {|word, index| word.length == 3 }
    => [false, false, true, true, true]

When testing against JRuby or Rubinius none of these scenarios raise an ArgumentError. I'm guessing this is a bug and not intended behavior. If it is intended then both those implementations have a bug in not raising ArgumentError.
