They are instance variables.

class Foo
attr_accessor :x, :y
def initialize(x,y)
@x = x
@y = y
end
def say_something
puts “@x is #{@x} and @y is #{@y}”
end
end

f = Foo.new(“hello”, “world”)
puts f.inspect
f.say_something

Using the accessor methods which attr_accessor adds

f.x = “goodbye”
puts f.x
puts f.y

You really need to understand instance variables, classes and methods if
you are going to start programming in Ruby. I suggest you start here:
http://www.ruby-doc.org/docs/ProgrammingRuby/

(If you want a paper or PDF book, there are newer versions of this book
available from www.pragprog.com)

Thanks Brian.
