Isn't :: a method? How to define?

SyntaxError: compile error

def ::(x)

Thanks.

It isn’t a method, its syntax.

In fact it’s very similiar to dot (.). You wouldn’t expect to be able
to redefine that, would you?

Ah. So it’s short for const_get? Maybe I can still use it.

It’s not exactly short for const_get either:

class A
def self.class_meth
puts “hi”
end
A_CONST = 7
end

A::class_meth
puts A::A_CONST

hi
7

In fact its const_get or perform method, dpeneding whether or not the
constant exists
