Issue #15876 has been updated by Hanmac (Hans Mackowiak).


There is `Encoding.compatible?` which might help to check if two strings/symbols has a common encoding

@naruse i don't know if you are the right contact person for this, but is there a way to see if two encoding objects are compatible or can that only be checked on the string?

Bug #15876: 1.to_s.encoding != Encoding.default_internal

----------------------------------------
I ran into strange looking test output when I compared .to_s with an expected text, saying that the encoding was different, which is confusing/annoying especially to users that don't know how encodings work in ruby.
1.to_s.encoding should be the same as "".encoding
