What do you mean by a "hidden class", or "code that isn't viewable"? If 
the Ruby interpreter is able to read a .rb file, then so are you.

But in any case there are a number of reflection methods, for example:

irb(main):001:0> File.instance_methods - Object.instance_methods
=> ["select", "read", "<<", "lineno=", "tell", "mtime", "fileno", 
"partition", "print", "rewind", "pid", "readpartial", "grep", 
"readlines", "stat", "truncate", "tty?", "seek", "reject", "getc", 
"binmode", "to_io", "ctime", "pos", "putc", "closed?", "member?", 
"readchar", "find", "pos=", "close_read", "each_with_index", 
"each_line", "lstat", "reopen", "to_i", "collect", "sysseek", "all?", 
"entries", "fsync", "puts", "eof", "detect", "ungetc", "zip", 
"each_byte", "flock", "close_write", "syswrite", "map", "any?", "ioctl", 
"chmod", "sync", "sort", "include?", "min", "gets", "sync=", "flush", 
"find_all", "write", "isatty", "each", "atime", "sysread", "inject", 
"printf", "eof?", "fcntl", "path", "sort_by", "chown", "lineno", "max", 
"readline", "close"]
