I have tidied up and completed the implementation of Range. Once
tokenizing is working correctly and a bug #17448
atid=16798> , regarding Kernel#respond_to?, Is fixed then all the specs
pass. The relevant specs that fail in these cases have been excluded.
. Range#step and Range#each have a lot of common functionality
this has been factored out; both have a number of specialized algorithms
depending on what kind of objects Range#begin and Range#end are. I have
modified the specs for these accordingly and I will see if I can pass
on to the guys in Rubinius.
. I have added Protocols.TryCompare because it was needed for
. There were some problems between creating literal Ranges (i.e.
2…4) and explicitly creating them (i.e. Range.new(2,4,true)). This is
solved, even for derived classes (i.e. class Range2 < Range … end).
The patch is run against r74 at the trunk level.
Hope this all works,
