Overview

A Hash subclass that normalizes the hash keys to allow lookup by the key.to_s or key.to_sym. It also supports looking up hash values by methods that match the keys.

Dynamic Method Handling

This class handles dynamic methods through the method_missing method

#method_missing(m, *args, &block) ⇒ Boolean

Handles requests for Hash values. Others cause an Exception to be raised.

Parameters:

  • m (Symbol|String)

    method symbol

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    the value of the specified instance variable.

Raises:

  • (ArgumentError)

    if an argument is given. Zero arguments expected.

  • (NoMethodError)

    if the instance variable is not defined.

def [](key)
  return fetch(key, nil) if has_key?(key)
  return fetch(key.to_s, nil) if has_key?(key.to_s)
  fetch(key.to_sym, nil)
end

#respond_to?(m, include_all = false) ⇒ Boolean

Replaces the Object.respond_to?() method.

Parameters:

  • m (Symbol)

    method symbol

  • include_all (Boolean) (defaults to: false)

    whether to include private and protected methods in the search

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    true for any method that matches an instance variable reader, otherwise false.
