Issue #5728 has been updated by Nobuyoshi Nakada.


=begin
I don't think we have two.

The latter choice is not acceptable, since the return value of (({Kernel#system})) and the first argument of (({Kernel#exit})) are same as the former.

And should not assume (({EXIT_SUCCESS})) to be 0.

Bug #5728: SystemExit.new(bool, message)

I found SystemExit.new doesn't take a bool as exit status:

It works well if an integer is given for status.

  % ./ruby -e 'SystemExit.new(0, "msg")' 
  % ./ruby -e 'SystemExit.new(1, "msg")'  

But it doesn't work if the status is a bool.

  % ./ruby -e 'SystemExit.new(true, "msg")'
  -e:1:in `initialize': wrong number of arguments (2 for 0..1) (ArgumentError)
	  from -e:1:in `initialize'
	  from -e:1:in `new'
	  from -e:1:in `<main>'
  % ./ruby -e 'SystemExit.new(false, "msg")'
  -e:1:in `initialize': wrong number of arguments (2 for 0..1) (ArgumentError)
	  from -e:1:in `initialize'
	  from -e:1:in `new'
	  from -e:1:in `<main>'

  % ./ruby -v
  ruby 2.0.0dev (2011-12-08 trunk 33981) [x86_64-linux]

I think SystemExit.new should accept a bool.
