Issue #15745 has been updated by Eregon (Benoit Daloze).


I think it's a possibility and is is somewhat consistent.
Otherwise, we need to special-case #inspect for both beginless and endless ranges as you said above.

I'd rather have a straightforward implementation for Range#inspect like https://github.com/oracle/truffleruby/blob/04afba28d4ab1bdbfd8d92027f1ccc48b9a50bcb/src/main/ruby/core/range.rb#L212-L215

Bug #15745: There is no symmetry in the beginless range and the endless range using `Range#inspect`

The following commit introduces beginless range.
https://github.com/ruby/ruby/commit/95f7992b89efd35de6b28ac095c4d3477019c583

```
% ruby -v
ruby 2.7.0dev (2019-04-03 trunk 67423) [x86_64-darwin17]
```

There is no symmetry with endless range when using `Range#inspect` method.

```
(1..).inspect # => "1.."
(..5).inspect # => "nil..5"
```

How about unifying whether it represents `nil`?
