Description

I like to write my method definitions without parenthesis. For example:

def foo bar
  # ...
end

I tried to use ..., but it doesn't work. For example if I do:

def call a, ...
  a.nil?(...)
end

It will be a syntax error, and the program exits. Can we make this syntax work so that I can always omit parenthesis?

Thank you!
