Basically, I am trying to test that my_method returns the contents of
the file. The Kernel#open method will return what its block returns, so
when stubbing Kernel#open I am trying to simulate this behaviour. The
assertion would be (sorry I missed this out):

assert_equal "The file contents", obj.my_method

Here's a complete example:

require 'test/unit'

class Foo
  def return_from_block
    return yield
  def my_method
    return_from_block { "Something" }

class FooTest < Test::Unit::Testcase
  def test_my_method
    foo = Foo.new
    assert_equal "Something", foo.my_method
