Dynamic Method Handling

This class handles dynamic methods through the method_missing method

#method_missing(method_name, *arguments) ⇒ Object

If method_name does not have a ! or ? suffix then self[/#{method_name}/i] is returned. If it returns nil or raises TypeError (no default_finders) then super is returned.

If method_name ends in a ! then self[method_name] (without the !) is returned. If method_name ends with a ? then a boolean is returned determining whether or not a match was found.

users = QueryableArray.new User.all, :username

users.bob                   # => #<User @username='bob'>
users.BOB                   # => #<User @username='bob'>
users.missing               # => NoMethodError
QueryableArray.new.missing  # => NoMethodError

users.bob!  # => #<User @username='bob'>
users.BOB!  # => NoMethodError

users.bob?      # => true
users.BOB?      # => true
users.missing?  # => false
