Bug #13249

Updated by abotalov (Andrei Botalov) over 2 years ago

Simple example:


~~~ ruby
class C
def self.foo
private
def bar
end
end
end
C.foo
C.new.bar


~~~

This code runs fine on Ruby 2.3 and Ruby 2.4. It raises NoMethodError on Ruby 2.2 and prior versions.
I would expect an error to be raised.

Here is some code that actually uses private access modifier inside a class method - https://github.com/evolve75/RubyTree/blob/db48c35b0a3b96e4da473b095cc00e454d8a9996/lib/tree/utils/camel_case_method_handler.rb#L60

By the way, this code raises an error as expected on Ruby 2.3 and Ruby 2.4:


~~~ ruby
class C
def self.foo
private def bar
end
end
end
C.foo
C.new.bar


~~~
