Issue #13303 has been updated by herwinw (Herwin Quarantainenet).


> and understand there's Array#any?.

This is a misconception, `Array#any?` does not check if the array is empty, but if there is a true-ish value in the array:

```ruby
irb(main):001:0> [false, nil].any?
=> false
```

This is documented by `Enumerable#any?`: "If the block is not given, Ruby adds an implicit block of { |obj| obj } that will cause any? to return true if at least one of the collection members is not false or nil."


Beside that, I don't think `String#any?` is a sensible method name to check if a string is non-empty.

Feature #13303: String#any? as !String#empty?

Once I proposed "some container#nonempty?" on #12075, and understand there's Array#any?.

Today I found String doesn't have such method.
