method

yield

Importance_2
yield(*args) public

Invokes the block, setting the block’s parameters to the values in params using something close to method calling semantics. Generates a warning if multiple values are passed to a proc that expects just one (previously this silently converted the parameters to an array). Note that prc.() invokes prc.call() with the parameters given. It’s a syntax sugar to hide “call”.

For procs created using lambda or ->() an error is generated if the wrong number of parameters are passed to a Proc with multiple parameters. For procs created using Proc.new or Kernel.proc, extra parameters are silently discarded.

Returns the value of the last expression evaluated in the block. See also Proc#yield.

a_proc = Proc.new {|a, *b| b.collect {|i| i*a }}
a_proc.call(9, 1, 2, 3)   #=> [9, 18, 27]
a_proc[9, 1, 2, 3]        #=> [9, 18, 27]
a_proc = lambda {|a,b| a}
a_proc.call(1,2,3)

produces:

prog.rb:4:in `block in <main>': wrong number of arguments (3 for 2) (ArgumentError)
 from prog.rb:5:in `call'
 from prog.rb:5:in `<main>'
