Description

If we want to iterate over the elements of a enumerable object with multiple blocks, we can use the Enumerator class.

A method 'iterate' is required, we can write it in Ruby:

class Enumerator
  def iterate
    yield_value = self.next
    return_value = yield yield_value
    self.feed return_value
    self
  end
end

Well, here is an example:

array = (1..10).to_a
enum = array.map!

loop do
  enum.iterate {|n| n + 10 }
  enum.iterate {|n| n * 2 }
  enum.iterate {|n| -n }
end

p array # => [11, 4, -3, 14, 10, -6, 17, 16, -9, 20]

We want to map an array: the 1st element use blk1, the 2nd use blk2, the 3rd use blk3...

I think this Enumerator#iterate method is sometimes useful, so would you please introduce it into the language core?
