Hello,

I am new to this list (and language) but I didn't find my answer from  
the documentation available.

I simply would like to do something like:

myObject = class.fromName("a_class_name").new

I can do this in Java and Objective-C but didn't find how in Ruby.  
The idea is to have some configuration files for an activity which  
contain a class name to instantiate depending on the activity.

Many thanks (and sorry if this is an obvious question),
