There’s plenty extra to profit approximately periods, and you’ll discover a lot additional information on periods in bankruptcy nine. For straight away, you may get through with the fundamentals. instance 2-1 indicates a Ruby application, pleasant. rb, that has sessions, hi and see you later. You’ll locate this software within the archive of Ruby courses that includes this e-book (down- load it from http://www. oreilly. com/catalog/learningruby). Run this software at a shell 23 or command urged, within the listing the place the archive used to be put in. If a code instance isn't in a dossier, you could kind that code in irb to determine for your self what it does. i beg you to run as a lot code as you dare. instance 2-1. pleasant. rb type hi def hiya greeting = "Hello, Matz! " places greeting finish finish type so long < hi def solong farewell = "Goodbye, Matz. " places farewell finish finish pleasant = see you later. new pleasant. hello pleasant. solong in the event you run this system in instance 2-1, you’ll get those messages again: $ pleasant. rb hi, Matz! see you later, Matz. skilled programmers can most probably inform what’s taking place in instance 2-1 with none tutoring. If you’re now not the sort of, learn on; in a different way, you could bypass forward to the following heading (or bounce to bankruptcy nine while you are desirous to get the total tale on Ruby classes). The hi classification defines the hey process. this system prints the contents of the string linked to the greeting variable, hi, Matz!. The see you later type likewise comprises the definition of a style, solong, which prints a string assigned to the farewell variable, so long, Matz!. The see you later classification additionally inherits what’s within the hi category; that’s what the < image is for. which means the so long type didn’t need to redefine the whats up procedure. It simply inherited it. pleasant is an item, an example of the see you later classification. the recent technique known as on so long comes from the thing classification and creates the hot example pleasant (more on the thing type within the subsequent section). you should use the pleasant item to name either the hello and solong tools, since it inherently understands approximately them. It understands approximately the solong procedure since it is outlined contained in the so long type, and it understands approximately the hey process simply because see you later inherited it from hi. That’s approximately up to i'll let you know for now. there'll be details on periods unfold in the course of the chapters that stick to. bankruptcy nine spells out sessions in additional aspect. 24 | bankruptcy 2: a brief travel of Ruby The Bucket Analogy should you don’t understand what an object-oriented programming language (OOP) is, do that uncomplicated analogy. ponder a category, the center-piece of OOP, as a bucket. think that it holds water, and that it has a ladle or sticking up out of it. The water is just like the homes (data or details) type holds, and the ladles are just like the instruments (methods) which could manage the water (data). the most software you utilize with a category is a mode, a suite of code that may be given a reputation and reused. the tactic is like a ladle that you just dip into the bucket and use to tug issues out or pour issues in.
