Feature #8459

Idiomatic method names for Socket

Added by Amos King over 2 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Assignee:Akira Tanaka


In order to still have the POSIX standard functionality as well as an alternative idiomatic ruby version it would be nice to have some of the methods aliased in the core.


Soket.gethostname => Socket.hostname

There is already a pull request open on the github version of Ruby. https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/320#issuecomment-18591614

Again this changes none of the current method names. This is only to add some idiomatic method names to match.

I'm negative.

Such convention makes naming new method more difficult.

Naming is already very difficult.
I don't want to it more difficult.
