Description

The following commit introduces beginless range.
https://github.com/ruby/ruby/commit/95f7992b89efd35de6b28ac095c4d3477019c583

% ruby -v
ruby 2.7.0dev (2019-04-03 trunk 67423) [x86_64-darwin17]

There is no symmetry with endless range when using Range#inspect method.

(1..).inspect # => "1.."
(..5).inspect # => "nil..5"

How about unifying whether it represents nil?
