MatchData#[]: Omits All But Last Captures Corresponding to the Same Named Group

Added by runpaint (Run Paint Run Run) almost 13 years ago. Updated over 4 years ago.

Description

=begin
I suspect that MatchData#[:symbol] should return an Array of values when the same named group has been matched multiple times.

m = 'food'.match(/(?oo)(?d)/)
=> #<MatchData "ood" f:"oo" f:"d">
m[:f]
=> "d"
m.to_a
=> ["ood", "oo", "d"]
=end
