Issue #15518 has been updated by mrkn (Kenta Murata).


I fixed the case for ranges whose end is Float::INFINITY.
If you want to continue to discuss for the other cases, please create the new issue.

Bug #15518: good old Infinite range notation behavior
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15518#change-76580

----------------------------------------
Ruby 2.5.3's behavior

~~~
# without step, it produces integer sequence
(1..Float::INFINITY).first(10) #=> [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
# with step, it produces floats instead of integers
(1..Float::INFINITY).step(1).first(10) #=> [1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0]
~~~

Ruby 2.6.0's behavior

~~~
# endless range
(1..).first(10) #=> [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
# with step, all numbers are integer now
(1..).step(1).first(10) #=> [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]

# old idiom with Float::INFINITY
(1..Float::INFINITY).first(10) #=> [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
(1..Float::INFINITY).step(1).first(10) #=> FloatDomainError (Infinity)
~~~

Which are intended change and which are not?
