in thread Other programming language I most often use

The following code will output Ruby is a great language!
a="Perl" def a.+ other "Ruby"+other end a+=" is a great language!\n"
So, ruby does actually allow you to extend and redefine it's built-classes.. the example also works if you define a new class which inherits String, instead of using singleton style inheritance.. I have not however tested this with every built-in class, but those I have tried it with, worked fine!

Or am I just confusing it with that so-called OO language being hyped by Sun? {grin}
He he... probably... I have had alot of beginners getting really confused over the hybrid style of Java...

    Having looked at it recently I think that there may be a couple of exceptions. Specifically Fixnum. However since that is just an internal representation of Integer I don't think there is any practical limitation there.

[LanX]: choroba IIRC these errors are indicated
[1nickt]: Missing title suppresses the submit button, I think.
[1nickt]: Petroza to answer your question, no, no special permission is needed to post a question.
[LanX]: did you spam before? :)
LanX has to go/
[ambrus]: I hope we didn't mess up the spam filter rules again.
[ambrus]: Our spam filter rules disallow links to certain domains, and some suspicious pharses that have appeared in previous spam advertising cheap online whatevers.
[LanX]: some servers were lagging today, so I suppose the root cause
[LanX]: ambrus no recent patches
[Petroza]: no i haven't posted anything before. It was a more or less long question with a specific issue. I did post a title and the links i added where only part of the element i was searching within the code (so no purpose other than the question itself).
