i'm very new to the rails scene and am seeing lines of code like attr_reader, attr_writer, attr_accessor, etc... and have no idea what they do. reading the section in the book i'm reading that explains the previous block of code says nothing about it really.

I can recommend reading up on your Ruby syntax. The pick axe book is an good start. Its for sale in any bookshop but also on-line here: http://www.rubycentral.com/book/. "attr_reader" is a method that will generate an instance variable, and a reader (a.k.a. getter) for it in your class. The others also create setters, etc. Have fun, Erik. Josh K. schreef:
