Issue #13665 has been updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada).

Description updated

At yesterday meeting, a name `lchomp` was proposed but rejected because of the special deal of CR LF.
If `delete_suffix` will be introduced, it should keep CR before LF when the argument is LF only, as well as `delete_prefix`.

Feature #13665: String#delete_suffix

----------------------------------------
In https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12694, we decided to have `String#delete_prefix`.
It would be nice to have `String#delete_suffix` method to delete suffix from a string for symmetry although it can be achieved with `String#chomp` as:

```ruby
class String
  def delete_suffix(substr)
    chomp(substr)
  end
  def delete_suffix!(substr)
    chomp!(substr)
  end
end
```

Any opinions?
