All,

Is there a notion of a class level "static" code block in Ruby that 
would get executed whenever the class is loaded?  Basically the 
equivalent of Java's "static {...}" construct?

I don't necessarily want to put this in an initialize method because 
it's just loading up static data from configuration files.

Or do I have to put the code into an initialize method in my class and 
then guard it so that it's only executed once?

Thanks,
Wes
