Description

Add Array#extract

The method removes and returns the elements for which the block returns a true value.
If no block is given, an Enumerator is returned instead.

numbers = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
odd_numbers = numbers.extract { |number| number.odd? } # => [1, 3, 5, 7, 9]
numbers # => [0, 2, 4, 6, 8]

This method was added to Active Support as extract! in https://github.com/rails/rails/pull/33137

In this post, you can find use cases of this method
https://bogdanvlviv.com/posts/ruby/rails/array-extract-to-activesupport-6-0.html

Add Hash#extract

The method removes and returns the key/value pairs for which the block evaluates to +true+.
If no block is given, an Enumerator is returned instead.

h = {a: 100, b: 200, c: 300}
h.extract {|k, v| v > 150} # => {:b=>200, :c=>300}
h # => {:a=>100}

Note that there is method extract! in Active Support that was added in 2009, see
https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/8dcf91ca113579646e95b0fd7a864dfb6512a53b
But I think we should upstream extract! to Ruby as slice!.

Add ENV.extract

The method removes and returns the key/value pairs for which the block evaluates to +true+.
If no block is given, an Enumerator is returned instead.

ENV.extract {|k, v| k == "PORT"} # => {"PORT"=>"3000"}
