Bug #16840: Why is Ruby getting slower in every version?
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16840

* Author: ana06 (Ana Maria Martinez Gomez)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Backport: 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN, 2.7: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
I was playing around with Ruby hashing and I have discovered something stra=
nge/surprising.

The file ``test.rb`` looks like:

```ruby

require 'benchmark'
$N =3D 100000

class Ana =

end

objects =3D Array.new($N) { Ana.new() }
hash =3D {}
puts Benchmark.measure { 100.times { objects.each { |obj| hash[obj] =3D tru=
e } }}
```

I executed ``test.rb`` with different Ruby versions and it takes longer wit=
h newer versions. There is 1.5 seconds difference between Ruby 2.5 and mast=
er. Is that expected? And if so, why? Those are the execution results:
