Issue #9678 has been updated by Alexey Muranov.


In fact, to be able to use text blocks without terminating "new line" character, something like this can be uses:

    print %("#{ >>MSG1 }"\n) + >>MSG2 + >>MSG3
    MSG1:
    > Some text not ending with NewLine character
    MSG2:
    > Some more text, with NewLine at the end
    >-
    MSG3:
    > And more text, without NewLine

Output:

    "Some text not ending in NewLine character"
    Some more text, with NewLine at the end
    And more text

Feature #9678: New heredoc syntax

For whatever it is worth, i've just had this idea of a new heredoc syntax for some programming language:

    class C
      def f(x)
        print >>Message1 + >>Message2
    Message1:
    > Literal text
    > ------------
    > Here text.
    >
    Message2:
    >> Text with interpolation and escapes
    >> -----------------------------------
    >> Here text with interpolation: #{ x }.
    >>
      end
    end
