In this section, you'll learn about another metaprogramming mechanism called define _method that will allow you to dynamically create methods at runtime in a Ruby program.
We'll continue with our Author class and use a method called define_method here:
class Author define_method("some_method") do puts "Some details" endend
Next, we'll call this method:
author = Author.newauthor.some_method
When you run this code, it'll print out the Some details value.
You may wonder how this is different from a regular method, such as this one:
def some_method puts "Some details"end
The answer is, they are the same!
So, this is not the kind of implementation you'd use define_method for in the real world. ...
