"break" from a block and a proc object used in block position
 
Hi!

In german ruby-forum we had a question which ends up in unclear situations. The
following code:

----- Code -----
def useblk1
puts "block (useblk1) returns '#{yield}'"
99
end
puts "useblk1 returns '#{useblk1 {break 42}}'"

def useblk2(&blk)
puts "block (useblk2) returns '#{blk.call}'"
99
end
puts "useblk2 returns '#{useblk2 {break 42}}'"

def useblk3
puts "block (useblk3) returns '#{yield}'"
99
end
puts "useblk3 returns '#{useblk3(&lambda{break 42})}'" rescue puts "useblk3
error: #$!"

def useblk4
puts "block (useblk4) returns '#{yield}'"
99
end
puts "useblk4 returns '#{useblk4(&Proc.new{break 42})}'" rescue puts "useblk4
error: #$!"
----- End of Code -----

results under Ruby 1.8.6 (OneClickInstaller-186-25) in:

----- Result Ruby 1.8.6 -----
useblk1 returns '42'
useblk2 returns '42'
useblk3 error: break from proc-closure
useblk4 error: break from proc-closure
----- End of Result -----

Which surprises me. When I read "PickAxe2" all should return from the method
with the value presented by "break".

When I run this Program with Ruby 1.9 (MSYS/MinGW build on Windows2000,
2007-05-15 patchlevel 0) the result is the following:

----- Result Ruby 1.9 -----
useblk1 returns '42'
block (useblk2) returns '42'
useblk2 returns '99'
useblk3 returns '42'
useblk4 returns '42'
----- End of Result -----

Here I'm confused by the result of "useblk2", but the rest is clear for me.

Did I make an error? - Are there Errors in 1.8.6? - Are there Errors in 1.9? - ???

I must admit that I am confused...
