missing_name()

Extract the name of the missing constant from the exception message.

begin
  HelloWorld
rescue NameError => e
  e.missing_name
end
# => "HelloWorld"
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/name_error.rb, line 11
def missing_name
  # Since ruby v2.3.0 `did_you_mean` gem is loaded by default.
  # It extends NameError#message with spell corrections which are SLOW.
  # We should use original_message message instead.
  message = respond_to?(:original_message) ? original_message : self.message

    $1 if /((::)?([A-Z]\w*)(::[A-Z]\w*)*)$/ =~ message
