Here’s a ruby noob question for ya:
I have a class I’ve made that the initalize method searches for a file
needed for the class to function.
Right now, I’ve made a class variable, “found”, that is set to true or
false if the initialize method could or could not find the file.
foo = Class.new
if foo.found == true
give error message
Is there a way for “Class.new” to signal failure? I originally had the
class’s initialize method return true or false but this doesn’t seem to
be reflected in a “foo = Class.new” when trying it in irb.
Using the class variable “found” works but shouldn’t Class.new signal
