I just stumbled across this page[1] on RubyGarden. The writer tells
that prototye-languages languages are great and that Ruby is not part
of them.

As I understand the definition, prototype based languages don't
instanciate objects from a class, but rather clone an existing model
object. Ruby's classes are objects.

So which is first, the Class or the Object ?

It makes me think of a french sentence which says : From the chicken
and the Egg, which was first ? (disregarding the theory of evolution)

Cheers,
