What's wrong with this?

Hey everyone, I’m very new to Ruby and I’m starting to do a bit more
hands-on practice… So I decided to make an attempt at making a small
bit of code, but when I run it, nothing happens… Can someone please
explain why?..

Here is what I have so far:

class RoboEngine

def initialize
puts “Initializing…”
Init.action1
end

end

class Initialization

def action1
puts “Initialized!”
sleep(0.3)
puts “Loading Thought Process…”
end
end

Init = Initialization.new

So why is it that when I run this, nothing happens? Nothing is
printed…

Well the only class being initialise in the Initialization class, you
could delete the whole RoboEngine class from your code because nothing
is using it

Put this after the last line

RoboEngine.new

and try again

You create an object of class Initialization and assign it to the
constant
Init. The only methods which are called is Initialization#initialize,
called
from Initialize.new. Since you haven’t defined it, Object#initialize is
used
instead and it does nothing.

I guess what you want is to also create an instance of RoboEngine, after
creating the Initialization object:

Init = Initialization.new
robo = RoboEngine.new

I hope this helps

Because the only methods which print something on the screen are
RoboEngine#initialize and Initialization#action1, and you didn’t call
any of
them.

Thank you both so much!! But could you please give me a very basic
explanation as to why it did not work before? o,o

-Thanks a ton!
