[11:20:06] alcy: hey folks, can someone take a look at this https://gist.github.com/alcy/9a2da91b4b5fb240aec1 - I am implementing the times method using each. It works fine. Any suggestions generally ?

[12:46:39] alcy: hello folks, I am referring to David Black's book - Well Grounded Rubyist, I am not able to understand the use of yield to execute the upcase function in a map implementation. Code - http://pastebin.com/FcVjpwb1
[12:48:03] alcy: apeiros: yes
[12:49:37] alcy: apeiros: in my_each its returning the array element at a position (so, yielding to the [] method perhaps). in my_map I am not able to understand how its yielding to the upcase call ?
[12:52:47] alcy: apeiros: gotcha, many thanks !
[12:54:47] alcy: apeiros: gotcha, thanks
