Instance Method Details

#constantize_by(splitter = "::") ⇒ Object

steal handy methods from activesupport Tries to find a constant with the name specified in the argument string.

'Module'.constantize # => Module 'Test::Unit'.constantize # => Test::Unit

The name is assumed to be the one of a top-level constant, no matter whether it starts with “::” or not. No lexical context is taken into account:

C = 'outside' module M C = 'inside' C # => 'inside' 'C'.constantize # => 'outside', same as ::C end

NameError is raised when the name is not in CamelCase or the constant is unknown.
