Feature #2509

Updated by yhara (Yutaka HARA) over 7 years ago

=begin 
  
  I like freezing my constants, config files I read, etc... I believe it is the typical use case for #freeze. 
 
  In all theses cases, what I really want to do is freeze everything. There is often no easy way to do this (e.g. for config files), or else one must explicitly call freeze a bunch of times, like: 
 
  DEFAULT_SEND_FILE_OPTIONS = { 
    :type           => 'application/octet-stream'.freeze, 
    :disposition    => 'attachment'.freeze, 
  }.freeze 
 
  It would be very nice if there was an easy way to freeze recursively arrays, hashes, etc... 
 
  A solution would be for #freeze to accept a level argument (similar to flatten, but the default being 1), or alternatively a boolean one (recursive = false).  
 
  Should I write a patch for this feature request? 
 
  Thanks, 
 
  Marc-André
