Hello everyone!

Is it possible to modify this function: beginning_of_week?

What I want is something like this :
beginning_of_week(0) returns Sunday
beginning_of_week(1) returns Monday

Thank you!

What's the argument that you're passing the method?

Just an integer?

I see 2 ways you could do this

1. Re-open the class that offers the functionality and add your code
to modify the behavior. I would not recommend that. I like leaving
code that I didn't write as it is.
2. Create something very simple that receives the parameter you need
and acts accordingly to use the existing beginning_of_week behavior
and get what you want.
