Class: HashBuilder

Inherits:
BasicObject
Defined in:
lib/standard/facets/hash_builder.rb

Overview

HashBuilder takes a procedure and builds a Hash out of it.

The procedure must conform to a set of rules to be useful in this respect. They must either take an argument and use that argument to set values, or if no argument is taken then `#instance_eval` is used to evaluate the procedure such that each method represents a key.
