Delegation Without Method_missing

With ActiveSupport we get a clean and easy way to implement the delegation pattern:

class QueueManager

  attr_accessor :queue

  # Delegates some methods to the internal queue
  delegate :size, :clear, :to => :queue

  def intialize
    self.queue = []
  end

end

m = QueueManager.new
m.size
# => 0
m.clear
# => []
