It's a Kernel (which has a bunch of generally useful methods, like
puts) method.  Strangely, the core API doesn't seem to have Kernel,
but the Pickaxe does at
http://www.ruby-doc.org./docs/ProgrammingRuby/html/ref_m_kernel.html .
 The other big "magic" module is called Module (which has a bunch of
metaprogramming methods for altering classes).
