Expand description

Compare the byte contents of two symbols using Unicode case-folding comparison for equality.

The byte slice associated with each symbol is resolved via the given interner. Unresolved symbols are compared as if they resolve to &[].

This comparison function attempts to convert each symbol’s byte content to a UTF-8 str. If both symbols resolve to UTF-8 contents, Unicode case folding is used when comparing the contents and this function returns Ok(Some(bool)). If neither symbol resolves to UTF-8 contents, this function falls back to ascii_casecmp and returns Ok(Some(bool)). Otherwise, the two symbols have byte contents with different encodings and Ok(None) is returned.

This function can be used to implement Symbol#casecmp? for the Symbol type defined in Ruby Core.


If the interner returns an error while retrieving a symbol, that error is returned. See Intern::lookup_symbol.
