Issue #15975 has been updated by shevegen (Robert A. Heiler).


Hmm. I don't doubt that this may possibly be useful, but the method name is
a bit ... weird. My first association with this name, oddly enough, is to
associate duck typing with it, and then to "pluck the duck" (yes, strange
association but I could not help it ...).

I do not have a better alternative suggestion for a name, though. It
reminds me a little bit of a more flexible variant of .dig(), though.

Feature #15975: Add Array#pluck

Inspired by https://github.com/rails/rails/issues/20339

While developing web applications I've often wanted to quickly extract an array of values from an array of hashes.

With an array of objects, this is possible:

```rb
irb(main):001:0> require 'ostruct'
=> true
irb(main):002:0> [OpenStruct.new(name: "Lewis")].map(&:name)
=> ["Lewis"]
```

This PR adds Array#pluck allowing this:

```rb
irb(main):001:0> [ {name: "Lewis"} ].pluck(:name)
=> ["Lewis"]
```

without this PR:

```rb
irb(main):001:0> [ {name: "Lewis"} ].map { |item| item[:name] }
=> ["Lewis"]
```

Implemented here:
