Hi John,
As far as I know, those constants are not part of Object proper, but the
Ruby global space. My recommendation would be to pick up a copy of the
Ruby “Pickaxe” book. The real title is “Programming Ruby”. An older
version of it is available here: http://www.rubycentral.com/book/

Google also helps a lot, though you may have to dig a bit to find the
information you need. I hope this helps!
