Issue #11818 has been updated by Prem Sichanugrist.


Active Support has this: http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/Hash.html#method-i-compact

I'm +1 on porting this method. While I think it's possible using a block form and `delete_if`, this method has a good name and intention that could live by its own.

Feature #11818: `Hash#compact`

I request `Hash#compact` and `Hash#compact!` that remove the key-value pairs whose value is `nil`, as follows:

    h1 = {a:, 1, b: nil, c: 2}
    h1.compact # => {a: 1, c: 2}
    h1 # => {a: 1, b: nil, c: 2}

    h2 = {a:, 1, b: nil, c: 2}
    h2.compact! # => {a: 1, c: 2}
    h2 # => {a: 1, c: 2}

    h3 = {a:, 1, c: 2}
    h3.compact! # => nil
    h3 # => {a: 1, c: 2}

I believe people have frequent need to do this.
