You've tripped on a funny feature of Ruby which some people have
grasped and I ... well, haven't. Sorry I can't think of a reference
x = "class instance variable"
x = "class variable"
x = "instance variable"
Run this code yourself to see the (predictable) output.
I just created [url]http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?ClassInstanceVaribles[/url].
If anyone knows of links to other information about them, that would
be a good place to gather them.
