Hello,

This is a summary for last week on the ruby-dev mailing list.


  [ruby-dev:19992] lib/date

Tadayoshi Funaba asked about lib/date and confirmed:

  * in 1.8, <=> method should return nil when it cannot
    compare with arguments (and should not raise error).
  * in 1.8, === method should return false when it cannot
    compare with arguments (and should not raise error).

Matz agreed.


  [ruby-dev:19987] Re: I quote: "Maybe IRB bug!!"

There was a discussion about IRB and security model
of Ruby. Matz suggested that IRB untained all
inputs because IRB should trust them.


  [ruby-dev:20012] radix from 2 through 36

Nobu Nakada made a patch to allow 2-36 as radix of
String#to_i and Integer#to_s.
