Why this program not working?

Hi

I am trying to execute this program from cookbook.

   def endless_string_succession(start)
while true
  yield start
  start = start.succ
end

end

puts endless_string_succession ‘aa’


Error messages that I am getting

C:/rubyexmples/1_16.rb:8: warning: parenthesize argument(s) for future
version
C:/rubyexmples/1_16.rb:3:in `endless_string_succession’: no block given
(LocalJumpError)
from C:/rubyexmples/1_16.rb:8

Any ideas?

Thanks In advance,
Sharma

Florian gave you the right solution, but to explain why, he should
have said the ‘yield’ keyword yields control of the code flow to a
block provided as a parameter (e.g., he provided ‘puts x’ as the block
parameter).

I suggest reading in the Pickage, Ruby for Rails, my book, or in your
favorite Ruby book about block parameters to understand more.

You forgot to pass the block to the method.

endless_string_succession(‘fsck’) {|str| #some crap }

Thank you guys for your fast && great responses…
