Issue #6284 has been updated by Martin Drst.


I'm teaching Haskell in a graduate class, so I'm quite familiar with function composition and use it a lot, but the original example isn't convincing at all. For me, in Ruby, something like val.strip.capitalize reads much, much better than some artificially forced function composition. If there werea method String#prepend, it would be even more natural: val.strip.capitalize.prepend('Title: ').

If there are better examples that feel more natural in Ruby, please post them here.

Feature #6284: Add composition for procs

It would be nice to be able to compose procs like functions in functional programming languages:

    to_camel = :capitalize.to_proc
    add_header = ->val {"Title: " + val}

    format_as_title = add_header << to_camel << :strip

instead of:

    format_as_title = lambda {|val| "Title: " + val.strip.capitalize }


It's pretty easy to implement in pure ruby:

  class Proc
    def << block
      proc { |*args| self.call( block.to_proc.call(*args) ) }
    end
  end
=end
