Issue #13211 has been updated by Tsuyoshi Sawada.


Whether to accept a splat (perhaps on an array) at the beginning of an argument is not something to be specified as a method signature.

Your real issue is to let the method accept an arbitrary number of arguments.

Whether you give it an array with a splat or you directly pass multiple arguments is solely up to how you use it in the particular context.

Feature #13211: Hash#delete taking a splat

Hi there,

I would like to add the ability for Hash#delete to take a splat of arguments that would delete entries at each of the given keys. I've run into this quite a few times where it would be useful in application code. Something like

```
def preprocess(args = {})
  do_some_preprocessing(%i[a b c].zip(args.delete(:a, :b, :c)).to_h)
  process(args)
end
```

Would be very happy to work on a patch for this if it's desired.
