Dynamic Method Handling

This class handles dynamic methods through the method_missing method in the class Danom::Monad

Instance Method Details

#and_then(&block) ⇒ Object

Note:

The fallback does not get the transformations

Allows chaining on nil values with a fallback

Default can be combined with a maybe. Extracting the value is recursive and will never return another monad.

Examples:

d = Default('Missing name', nil)
d = d.upcase.split.join #=> Danom::Default
name = ~d # 'Missing name'

d = Default('Missing name', 'Uri')
d = d.upcase #=> Danom::Default
name = ~d # 'URI'

Combining with a Maybe

m = Maybe(nil)
d = Default('No name', m) #=> Danom::Default
name = ~d #=>  'No name'
