Issue #6284 has been updated by baweaver (Brandon Weaver).


I just realized that infix operators evaluate before `to_proc`, allowing something like this:

```ruby
[1,2,3].map(&:succ.to_proc >> :to_str.to_proc)
```

Codified it into a gem for kicks: https://github.com/baweaver/mf

Feature #6284: Add composition for procs

It would be nice to be able to compose procs like functions in functional programming languages:

    to_camel = :capitalize.to_proc
    add_header = ->val {"Title: " + val}

    format_as_title = add_header << to_camel << :strip

instead of:

    format_as_title = lambda {|val| "Title: " + val.strip.capitalize }


It's pretty easy to implement in pure ruby:

  class Proc
    def << block
      proc { |*args| self.call( block.to_proc.call(*args) ) }
    end
  end
=end
