Bug #14824: Endless Range Support in irb
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14824

* Author: jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.6.0preview2 (2018-05-31 trunk 63539) [x86_64-openbsd]
* Backport: 2.3: UNKNOWN, 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
`irb` currently doesn't have great support for endless ranges, forcing you to use explicit parentheses around the endless range. Without explicit parentheses, it treats the endless range as a line continuation.

~~~
irb(main):001:0> 1..
irb(main):002:0* ;
=> 1..
irb(main):003:0> (1..)
=> 1..
irb(main):004:0>
~~~

Ranges with ends do not require parentheses in `irb`, and endless ranges should have the same behavior.
