It seems a bit unpleasant, like something that'll hit you in the back in the future.

Do you want to learn rake (ruby equivalent of make) ? then this tutorial is for you.

Since I'm working with ruby, and I'm quite new to it, I'll post some interesting stuff I learned. It's for now very newbish, but it'll eventually raise in quality

ruby stuff :

That code works :

class A
def A.class_method
puts "foo"
end
end

That code doesn't work :
class A::B::C
def A::B::C.class_method
puts "foo"
end
end

The solution :
class A::B::C
def (A::B::C).class_method
puts "foo"
end
end
