^ send() with a block?
379755 [bbxx789_05ss] Why don't the ruby docs say that send() can take a block?
+ 379756 [sean.ohalpin] It's not the send() that's consuming the block - it's the define_method().

379959 [cremes.devli] Yes.
379965 [cremes.devli] Let me expand on that just a bit. JRuby still defaults to the 1.8 syntax, so for running 1.9 code you must pass the --1.9 command line switch when starting it up. I believe there is a way to make that a default but I don't know the exact details. I assume it involves setting an environment parameter to contain the --1.9 command; I recommend asking on the JRuby mailing list or joining the #jruby channel on irc.freenode.net and asking there.
