Java background?

Ruby's concept of namespaces is different from packages in Java. Also,
there's no need that your Node class is defined in a file called

In your example above, you'd need to make sure that (...)/vendor is in
your $LOAD_PATH, for example by calling ruby like this:

   ruby -I(...)

and then you require the file:

  require "html-scanner/html/node"

Assuming that no conflichts exists and `Node` isn't in fact packed
into a namespace /module called `HTML-Scanner::HTML` you can now
access `Node` like you would any other class.

That what you meant?
