Hi all,

 This is a summary of ruby-dev mailing list.

[ruby-dev:20268] splat restary

 In 1.8.0, both asterisk prefixed parameter in method arguments
 and parallel assignment operator '*' would use to_ary and to_a
 for conversion values to an array.  Nobu Nakada fixed the
 implementation of the feature. 


[ruby-dev:20287] Is it bug of IRB?

 As you know IRB is a nice interactive command tool to try
 Ruby language and its features.  NISHI Takao tried to
 redefine Array#[] in IRB but it stopped because the IRB
 is implemented in Ruby itself and use the Array class in it.
 Keiju and Matz followed that, in order to use Ruby's full features
 in IRB, the implementation of IRB should be done in Array's
 subclasses, and that of Ruby be clean to execute IRB properly.
