Re: How to find out object type

But that then would assume I know what the object might be. I mean, do

.class which will give a “hint” as to the class the object was
created with. This seems to fit what I was looking for.

Many thanks to all!

it is
you ask the object what kind of object are you?


o.kind_of?( Fixnum )
