Issue #14394 has been updated by Hanmac (Hans Mackowiak).


More like:

```
class A
end

x = Class.new(A)

y = x.new
```

How does the GC handle such classes?
Will they get GC'd when there isn't any reference to them anymore?

Feature #14394: Class.descendants
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/14394#change-87323

* Author: ridiculous (Ryan Buckley)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
----------------------------------------
There have been numerous implementations of the method Class.descendants by various gems. However, I can't help but think that this ability should be included in the Ruby language itself. Especially since Ruby already offers the counterpart method Class.ancestors.

Would it possible to add a `descendants` class method?
