Issue #9678 has been updated by Alexey Muranov.


I have just realized this would cause a difficulty with pasting code into `irb`.  This would not be the first, however -- the following cannot be pasted into `irb` either:

    class C
      def f
        1
      end
    end

    puts C.new
      .f

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
