Hi, I want to implement methods like Ruby's protected that will effect some aspect of the subsequently defined methods. For example, I want write sth like follows: class Test authorize_for :ROLE1, :ROLE2 def method1 ... end def method2 ... end authorize_for :ROLE3 def method3 ... end end In the def. on authorize_for method, I can use a global var to hold the parameters passed and then use then in method_added callback. However, once the class definition end, I no longer need those global variables and I couldn't find a way to mark them for gc (set to nil). I need a way to be informed about the end of the class definition. I considered set_trace_func but because there is no way to chain or restore trace funcs after set, so that is not really an option. I also checked for class_added callback, but according to the Ruby list, it's been refused because of lack of concrete usage. Is there any other way to accomplish this? M. Ayhan
