Feature #11537

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) about 2 years ago

I sometimes somtimes write following code with rails application:

```ruby ```rb
u = User.find(id)
if u && u.profile && u.profile.thumbnails && u.profiles.thumbnails.large
...
```

or

```ruby ```rb
# Use ActiveSupport
if u.try!(:profile).try!(:thumbnails).try!(:large)
...
```
I hope to write shortly above code. Groovy has above operator named "Safe navigation operator" with "`?.`" "?." syntax.
Ruby can't use "`?.`" "?." operator.

Can we use "`.?`" ".?" syntax. like this:

```ruby ```rb
u = User.find(id)
u.?profile.?thumbnails.?large
```

Matz. How do you think about this?
