Issue #13592 has been updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada).

Description updated
Status changed from Open to Rejected

The proc returned by `Symbol#to_proc` is equivalent to `proc {|recv, *args| recv.__send__(self, *args)}`.
So it can call private methods too.

Bug #13592: Enumerable#reduce with symbol does not respect method visibility
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13592#change-65048

* Author: americodls (Americo Duarte)
* Status: Rejected
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.4.1p111 (2017-03-22 revision 58053) [x86_64-darwin15]
* Backport: 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
When use reduce with symbol, I expect the symbol is called in object but respecting the method visibility.

Example with source code written in a file.

~~~ruby
Fixnum.instance_eval do
  private :+
end

p [1,2,3].reduce(:+)
~~~

The behavior in IRB is different.

~~~
irb(main):001:0> [1,2,3].reduce(:+)
=> 6
irb(main):002:0> Fixnum.instance_eval do
irb(main):003:1*   private :+
irb(main):004:1> end
=> Fixnum
irb(main):005:0>
/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/irb/input-method.rb:154:in `gets': private method `+' called for 4:Fixnum (NoMethodError)
~~~

Now, I am confused. Those behaviors are expected? In doc this is not clear.
