Bug #9005

object.send(:define_method, ...){...} creates private method

Added by jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans) almost 7 years ago. Updated almost 6 years ago.

Status:

Priority:
Normal
Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 2.1.0dev (2013-09-22 trunk 43011) [i386-openbsd]
[ruby-core:57747]

Description

I assume this is caused by r40022, which made define_method consider visibility. However, visibility should only be considered if define_method is called normally, not via send. When called via send, it should define a public method. Here's example code showing the error:

$ ruby21 -ve "Object.send(:define_method, :foo){|*a| 1}.foo"
-e:1:in <main>': private methodfoo' called for :foo:Symbol (NoMethodError)

I apologize in advance if this has already been fixed (I tested 2.1.0-preview1, not trunk), but from the commit logs it doesn't appear to have been.
