Ruby module nesting and scope of constant names
View ruby_module_nesting.rb
# == Module name assignment ==
# A Ruby module's name is determined when it first becomes
# assigned as the value of a top-level constant or of a
# constant in a module that has received a name.
# The module's name represents the hierarchy of containership,
# and is not dependent upon the execution path of the code
# that defined the module (as opposed to the module nesting
# for defined methods -- see below).

Fake tail recursion in Ruby without relying on tail optimization support in the Ruby VM
View computes_recursively.rb
# This is a mixin module that adds support for tail-recursive
# style programming in Ruby without relying on any true tail
# recursion optimization in the Ruby virtual machine.
# Since tail recursion calls are actually deferred until after
# returning from the method that invoked #tail, recursions can
# be "nested" to an unlimited depth without overflowing the
# stack.
# The including module can define tail-recursive methods within

Interfaces for Ruby
View defines_interface.rb
# A module for inclusion in a class of objects that delegate to and
# provide restricted interface definitions for underlying "occurrence"
# objects.
# This is useful for purposes such as to enforce the same API for a
# unit under test as for mocks and stubs of the same unit used for
# testing other units.
# This is a proof of concept demonstration and is not well-tested,
# production-ready code.

Created Mar 7, 2013
Allow any ActiveRecord uniqueness validation(s) to be deferred, and only check after a failed save due to uniqueness violation error from the database.
View deferred_uniqueness_validations.rb
# ./config/initializers/deferred_uniqueness_validations.rb
# This initializer adds support for deferred processing of
# ActiveRecord uniqueness validations. When a uniqueness
# validation is deferred using the :deferred => true option, it is
# not checked before save. Instead, if there is a uniqueness
# constraint defined for the column in the database, and if the
# save operation raises an ActiveRecord::RecordNotUnique
# exception, then the validation is performed so that the precise
# cause can be determined and the appropriate error information
