Where nested methods go?

Hi,
I’m very new to ruby, so please forgive me if my question seems somehow
silly.
I typed the following code:

class Myclass
def m1
def m2
puts “m2”
end
end
end

a = Myclass.new
a.m1
a.m2

b = Myclass.new
b.m2

which gives the following output:

m1
m2

While it is clear to me where the m1 method goes (that is: in the class
object referred by Myclass constant) I’m a bit confused on why also m2
is in Myclass class object!

I need some clarifications about it…

tahnks!

Thanks! I will have a look at that!
