I have a class and two class methods: self.encode and self.decode. The
encode method expects a class variable (@@table) to be "initialized".
Whereas it's possible to do that in def self.encode(bytes) method of my
class, I was interested to know if I can do that elsewhere (static
blocks, a la Java?). What is the recommended way to do such class
initialization tasks?
