Issue #13395 has been updated by kernigh (George Koehler).


Because `!` is a method, one can also write `!object.nil?` as `object.nil?.!` using the method chain `.nil?.!` to check for not nil. This works since Ruby 1.9, if I recall.

Feature #13395: Add a method to check for not nil

----------------------------------------
There does not seem to be a method in Ruby to check if an object is *not* nil.
Such a method could help with readability.

Example:
> ~~~ ruby
> array = [1, 'dog', nil]
> array.count(&:not_nil?)
> ~~~

> vs

> ~~~ ruby
> array = [1, 'dog', nil]
> array.reject(&:nil?).count
> ~~~
