Method

Public Instance Methods

meth == other_meth → true or false click to toggle source

Two method objects are equal if they are bound to the same object and refer to the same method definition and their owners are the same class or module.

 
               static VALUE
method_eq(VALUE method, VALUE other)
{
    struct METHOD *m1, *m2;

    if (!rb_obj_is_method(other))
        return Qfalse;
    if (CLASS_OF(method) != CLASS_OF(other))
        return Qfalse;

    Check_TypedStruct(method, &method_data_type);
    m1 = (struct METHOD *)DATA_PTR(method);
    m2 = (struct METHOD *)DATA_PTR(other);

    if (!rb_method_entry_eq(m1->me, m2->me) ||
        m1->rclass != m2->rclass ||
        m1->recv != m2->recv) {
        return Qfalse;
    }

    return Qtrue;
}
            
meth[args, ...] → obj click to toggle source

Invokes the meth with the specified arguments, returning the method’s return value.

m = 12.method("+")
m.call(3)    #=> 15
m.call(20)   #=> 32
 
               VALUE
rb_method_call(int argc, VALUE *argv, VALUE method)
{
    VALUE proc = rb_block_given_p() ? rb_block_proc() : Qnil;
    return rb_method_call_with_block(argc, argv, method, proc);
}
            
arity → fixnum click to toggle source

Returns an indication of the number of arguments accepted by a method. Returns a nonnegative integer for methods that take a fixed number of arguments. For Ruby methods that take a variable number of arguments, returns -n-1, where n is the number of required arguments. For methods written in C, returns -1 if the call takes a variable number of arguments.

Invokes the meth with the specified arguments, returning the method’s return value.
