Remove stale `String` test conditionals

Added by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) about 2 months ago. Updated about 1 month ago.


Description

I found three instance variables in TestString in test/ruby/test_string.rb.

These select assertions:

  • @aref_re_nth = true
    Enables String#[regexp, index] assertions.

  • @aref_re_silent = false
    Assignment to unmatched region silently fails, if true.

  • @aref_slicebang_silent = true
    Out of range argument to String#slice! returns nil, not raising an exception.

These instance variables for conditional execution have remained unchanged for nearly twenty years, since YARV merger.
It is questionable whether these behaviors can be changed anymore.

So I propose to remove these conditionals.
