Issue #13581 has been updated by zverok (Victor Shepelev).


From [developer's meeting log](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1q22gVRNbCIYOQw2djH4UPmT0gxVoBKvjvs0MqX5ILcU/pub):

> 2.7 or later
> knu: Introducing “…” (as in Lua) would allow for writing this way: ary.each { puts(...) }
> Matz: Allowing omission of “self” sounds like a bad idea because that makes each(&:puts) and each(&.:puts) look very similar but act so differently.

The last Matz's notice makes a lot of sense for me, so I withdraw my petition for `self`-less operator :)

Feature #13581: Syntax sugar for method reference
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13581#change-75780

----------------------------------------
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?
