Issue #13581 has been updated by tom_dalling (Tom Dalling).


What about triple colon `:::`? 

```ruby
[1,2,3].map(&Math:::sqrt)
[1,2,3].each(&:::puts)
```

`::` is for looking up constants, so it kind of makes sense that `:::` is for looking up methods.

Feature #13581: Syntax sugar for method reference

Some another programming languages (even Java, in version 8) has a cool way to refer a method as a reference.

I wrote some examples here: https://gist.github.com/americodls/20981b2864d166eee8d231904303f24b

I miss this thing in ruby.

I would thinking if is possible some like this:

~~~
roots = [1, 4, 9].map &Math.method(:sqrt)
~~~

Could be like this:

~~~
roots = [1, 4, 9].map Math->method
~~~

What do you guys thinking about it?
