Difference between Exception.exception and Exception.new

Is there a difference between Exception.exception(…) and
Exception.new(…)? From the documentation, they seem to do exactly the
same.

Almost are the same.
But… Unfortunetly, the developers won’t say explicitly what means the
order of their analysys. Here’s the result.

p (Exception.exception(…) == Exception.new(…)) #==> false

Let’s try to get two instances of the same type:

p (Exception.exception(…).to_s == Exception.new(…).to_s)

May be TRUE? :slight_smile:

Hmmmmm… I tried with Ruby 2.2.3, and

Exception.new == Exception.exception

yielded true.
