Issue #16615 has been updated by shan (Shannon Skipper).


The idea of attrs returning a Symbol was rejected in: https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9453

Your example doesn't seem to be a macro. How does this differ from attrs?

----------------------------------------
Feature #16615: Group style access scope for macros
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16615#change-84225

* Author: ted (Ted Johansson)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
----------------------------------------
Given a method `.macro`, which defines an instance method `#bar` on a class, and returns the defined method's name as a symbol (`:bar`).

```
class Foo

  private

  macro :bar # On evaluation defines a method and returns its name.
end
```

it would be neat if the dynamically defined instance method respected the scope in which its definition originated. (In this particular case `private`.)

Note: I am aware that inline access scopes already work for dynamically defined methods, as they merely accept a symbol as an argument.
