instance_eval throws RuntimeError for bad syntax (regression from 2.0.0)
In Ruby 2.1.0dev (2013-10-20 trunk 43373),
instance_eval throws a
RuntimeError when it should throw a
SyntaxError, but only the first time it is called. If you use an IRB session to call
instance_eval a second time with the exact same arguments, it produces the expected
SyntaxError instead of .
Here is an example:
ruby -e "instance_eval('/unquoted/string/syntax/error')"
That example raises a
SyntaxError on Ruby 2.0.0p247, but raises a
RuntimeError on 2.1.0dev (2013-10-20 trunk 43373).

- Backport changed from 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN to 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: REQUIRED
Even though this issue is not reproducible with 2.0.0, the same flaw exists on
ruby_2_0_0. I'll backport r43376 to fix a potential bug.
