Issue #14821 has been updated by matz (Yukihiro Matsumoto).


Your proposal makes the specific case simpler like your example, but in general, it makes the intention of `yield_self` (or `then`) less clear.

Matz.

p.s.
I removed the previous comment because I made mistake.

----------------------------------------
Feature #14821: aditional arguments to yield_self
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14821#change-72373

* Author: DarkWiiPlayer (Dennis Fischer)
* Status: Rejected
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
----------------------------------------
Currently, `yield_self` only accepts a block as its single argument. I propose that it should also accept a series of additional arguments that get passed to the block after `self`

This is what I mean:

    def yield_self(*args, &block)
      block.call(self, *args)
    end

which would allow writing code like this

    some_object.yield_self(:name, :surname, &sort_stuff).do_more_stuff()

instead of code like this

    some_object.yield_self{|x| sort_stuff.call(x, :name, :surname).do_more_stuff()

This 1) is shorter 2) expresses intention rather than implementation.
