class_eval(*args) public

Evaluates the string or block in the context of mod, except that when a block is given, constant/class variable lookup is not affected. This can be used to add methods to a class. module_eval returns the result of evaluating its argument. The optional filename and lineno parameters set the text for error messages.

class Thing
a = %q{def hello() "Hello there!" end}
Thing.module_eval("invalid code", "dummy", 123)

dummy:123:in `module_eval': undefined local variable
