[ruby-dev:18185] autoload patch for ruby-1.7
Yoshinori K. Okuji first posted a patch which enables the autoload facility
to work with non-toplevel constants. Nobuyoshi Nakada posted a patch which
realize simpler implementation than Okuji’s one. Matz wrote “Now how should
we carry it out?”.
Koji Arai asked what is a difference between “replace” and “become” of String,
Array and Hash. Matz answered that there is semantically no difference between
them at present. But it is not decided how they come to be.
[ruby-dev:18186] [req] Marshal
We can’t marshal an object which has singleton methods. This leads a conclusion
that we can’t marshal an object extending a module, so this constraint seems
not to be reasonable.
Keiju Ishitsuka requested if we can get rid of the constraint. Matz took it as
an actual idea, and worth considering.
[ruby-dev:18197] VALUEs in yacc stack
Minero Aoki made the GC to work at parsing time, if yacc uses alloca() for
allocating its semantic stack.
