Would it be possible to alias .prepend() towards .unshift() for class Array by default?
For Strings we can do:
abc = 'world!' abc[0,0] = 'Hello ' abc # => "Hello world!"
For Arrays we can do:
abc = ['world!'] abc[0,0] = 'Hello ' abc # => ["Hello ", "world!"]
This is nice.
For Strings we can also use .prepend() to add to the beginning.
For Arrays, we have to use .unshift().
I have a hard time remembering .unshift though, .prepend() seems
to be easier for me to remember.
I'd like to use both .prepend for Strings and Arrays; right now
I have to use different names. I could alias prepend to unshift
for class Array, but then I'd have to carry these modifications
into my projects, which is not so good - I would prefer to just
stick to what MRI is doing.
Could we have the alias .prepend() for class Array, meaning
.unshift() too? That way I could use .prepend() for both Arrays
Thanks for reading!
