Issue #11779 has been updated by AlexWayfer (Alexander Popov).


From RSpec:

~~~ ruby
let(:test_class) do
  Class.new(described_class) do
    private

    using SomeRefiningModule # => RuntimeError: Module#using is not permitted in methods

    def foo
    end
  end
end
~~~


----------------------------------------
Bug #11779: Module#using does not make sense as a method
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/11779#change-71658

* Author: bughit (bug hit)
* Status: Feedback
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: matz (Yukihiro Matsumoto)
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 2.2.3
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
1. it can't be called from another method
2. the receiver must be self
3. since refinements are lexically scoped the self receiver must match the currently open class

#3 is particularly curious

```ruby
module Refinement
  refine String do
    def refined?
      true
    end
  end
end

module Foo
  def self.refined?
    ''.refined? rescue false
  end
end


module Bar
  def self.refined?
    ''.refined? rescue false
  end
  Foo.module_eval do
    using Refinement

  end
end

p Foo.refined? #false
```

The module_eval `#using` call does not raise (it's not from a method and the receiver is self), but evidently because currently open class does not match self, it does not do anything. So it should at least raise.

So `#using`, though a method, does not function as a method, which is misleading.
