Using a util class in ruby

I have a the following

Class Usertype

def add(a,b)
return a + b
end
end

and another class called Profession.

Class Profession
def users
end

end

What I want to be able to do is,in profession object, add a method
called “users”(shown above) which will return an instance of that
usertype util object?

Then if p1 = Usertype.new
I should be able to access add by using p1.users.add(a,b)

Is this possible?

I think you mean if p1 = Profession.new

Then in that case all you need is:

class Profession
def users
Usertype.new
end
end

In this case it’s not very useful. However when the throw-away object
also carries some state from its creator, then it can be very useful.

Yes, I meant p1 = Profession.new

and I defined users with a return type and it worked.

Thanks.
