NOT Equivalent to Array#reject!

@tadman is wrong. There is a difference and, trust me, it can bite:

1.9.2 > [1,2,3,4].delete_if {|x| x > 10}
 => [1, 2, 3, 4] 
1.9.2 > [1,2,3,4].reject! {|x| x > 10}
 => nil 

That is, if reject! hasn’t rejected anything, it returns nil.

Equivalent to Array#reject!

This method is functionally identical to Array#reject!

What artemave said.

I’d remove my original note if I could, but I can’t see a way how.
