Description

Is there an official doc for pattern matching?

I note that case in https://ruby-doc.org/core-2.7.2/doc/syntax/control_expressions_rdoc.html does not mention it, and in does not appear.

Funny.

Here: https://docs.ruby-lang.org/en/master/doc/syntax/control_expressions_rdoc.html#label-case+Expression we have

Since Ruby 2.7, case expressions also provide ....

I added the docs after the release of 2.7, unfortunately. Maybe ruby-doc.org doesn't refetch it for minor versions? It seems to correspond to https://docs.ruby-lang.org/en/2.7.0/doc/syntax/control_expressions_rdoc.html#label-case+Expression

Arrgh, also I see that on docs.ruby-lang.org "[on its own page]" in the last phrase is NOT linked to https://docs.ruby-lang.org/en/master/doc/syntax/pattern_matching_rdoc.html somehow :(

(As an aside note, I really believe Ruby needs some kind of "Documentation working group", the current state of things is errrrm sub-optimal.)

Ohh, glad to see it's there, not updated.

There have been many improvements by @BurdetteLamar, we should definitely update the published doc as it is today.

Who has access to do that?

Who has access to do that?

If you mean access to ruby-doc.org, I believe it is one-person project. Last time I wanted something to be fixed there I've just contacted maintainer on Twitter: https://twitter.com/zverok/status/1210512556449763329 (responses are currently removed, but he answered quickly and fixed the problem).

Ah, I confused both sites. Closing this then.
