Hm. You've chosen describe reasoning for your doing the emulation; rather then what that emulation (or the original feature) would be useful for.

6. I already expected you objecting

I guess that just goes to show how easy it is to see what you expect to see.

I meant the little used and not very useful Ruby feature, rather than your overly complex emulation of it.

    Perlers use regexes more often because they are better accessible in Perl.

    Codeblocks are easier accessible this way, thats why Ruby uses them very often.

    I have no problem, if you don't understand the aim of other paradigms and prefer to stick with your well known tools ... TIMTOWTDI. =)

      Still dodging the question I see. I'm surprised that you'd bother emulating a feature you cannot describe a use for.

        You know the story where Einstein was asked by a journalist if he can explain Relativity Theory in 10 minutes?

      There is no paradigm in here, just syntactic sucralose.
