Silly codeing error


#1

Hi
I am a new programmer of ruby and am reading the pickaxe book. Working
through the examples to try out my new spiffy ruby ide I thought I would
try some very basic code from the book as below:

class Song
def initiialize( name, artist, duration)
@name = name
@artist = artist
@duration = duration
end
end

song = Song.new(“Bicyclops” , “Fleck” , 260)
song.inspect

Now this fails with the following error `initialize’: wrong number of
arguments (3 for 0) (ArgumentError)

I can see no error with this, has anyone got any ideas?

Adrian

one too many ‘i’ characters in “initialize”

class Song
def initiialize( name, artist, duration)
@name = name
@artist = artist
@duration = duration
end
end

How have you spelt initialize??
