if applied_args.empty?

Tales of the Ruby Grimoire

Introduction

The council of 3.0 had been called, and Scarlet was readying to join them to discuss the future of the land of Ruby. With her was her student, Red, carrying out his latest lesson.

"Now be sure to finish the remaining problems by the time I return, Red. I expect I'll have many fun things to tell you of when I return." said Scarlet.

Red nodded, still writing away on his scrolls, but as Scarlet exited the castle a sly sort of grin grew on his face.

View contramap.rb
class Proc
def contramap(&fn) self << fn end
end
adds = -> a, b { a + b }.curry
[1, 2, 3].map(&adds[2])
# => [3, 4, 5]
# What if the type on the left doesn't work with `adds`?
