Module children

Hello,

I’d like to get the list of all the classes contained in a module.
What’s the simple way to do that?

Thank you

Here’s a quick and dirty implementation using ObjectSpace

module LibraryWrapperThing
class UtilityClassA; end
class Fish; end
class Dog; end
end
class NotMe; end

classes = []
ObjectSpace.each_object do |obj|
classes << obj if Module === obj
end

p classes.select {|c| c.name =~ /^LibraryWrapperThing::confused: }

=> [LibraryWrapperThing::Dog, LibraryWrapperThing::Fish, …]

module Foo; A = 1; class B; end; module C; end end
=> nil

Foo.constants.find_all { |k| Class === Foo.const_get(k) }
=> [“B”]

Personally, I usually map first:

Foo.constants.map { |s| Foo.const_get s }.find_all { |k| Class === k }
=> [Foo::B]

Ah! I always forget about that one. Good catch.

Personally, I usually map first:

Foo.constants.map { |s| Foo.const_get s }.find_all { |k| Class === k }
=> [Foo::B]

Then you can switch the the under loved grep():

Foo.constants.map { |s| Foo.const_get s }.grep(Class)
=> [Foo::B]
