Ruby: a class extending a module

Ruby: a class extending a module

I'm trying to to define a class called "HTML" to extend Nokogiri - which uses modules.

I tried the following:

require 'nokogiri'  class HTML     include Nokogiri end 


require 'nokogiri'  class HTML     extend Nokogiri end 

but so far it's been impossible that the class HTML inherit of all the functions in nokogiri. So stuff like are not working:

doc = doc.HTML(open('')) 

undefined method `HTML' for # (NoMethodError)

Does anyone know how I could manage to program a class that inherits of all the methods of a module?

In Perl are there disadvantages to generating getters and setters rather than hard-coding them?


Can I autoload function files without classes in PHP?
Nokogiri doesn't have any instance methods to inherit:.
Calling a Variable from another Class
irb> Nokogiri.instance_methods #=>  [] 
But normally, you would use extend.
PHP: Use variable name to call static function on Singleton Object
 % ri extend ---------------------------------------------------------- Object#extend      obj.extend(module, ...)    => obj ------------------------------------------------------------------------      Adds to obj the instance methods from each module given as a      parameter. 

Multiple Integer-type classes in C++
module Mod def hello "Hello from Mod.\n" end end class Klass def hello "Hello from Klass.\n" end end k = k.hello #=> "Hello from Klass.\n" k.extend(Mod) #=> #<Klass:0x401b3bc8> k.hello #=> "Hello from Mod.\n" %
What you want to do is use all the class methods of the Nokogiri module as instance methods of your class.

What (not) to declare when implementing an interface with an abstract class?
Which is a bit nonstandard, which is why the syntax doesn't support it.

What is the best way to access properties from the same class, via accessors or directly? [closed]
Most programmers use ruby modules for the Singleton pattern - there only needs to be one Nokogiri, so other things shouldn't be able to use its methods..
Can I extend a class using more than 1 class in PHP?
You could do some hacking with UndefinedMethods to get around this, but considering that Nokogiri has some compiled code in the backend, this may produce undefined bugs.. Which isn't to say you can't forward calls to Nokogiri:.
# nokogiri_wrapper.rb require 'rubygems' require 'nokogiri'  class NokogiriWrapper   def method_missing(meth, *args, &blk)     puts "call for #{meth.inspect}, #{args}, #{blk ? "with block" : "and no block"}"     if Nokogiri.methods.include? meth.to_s       puts "forwarding to Nokogiri"       Nokogiri.send(meth, *args, &blk)     else       puts "falling back to default behaviour"       super     end   end end  html = "<html></html>"  puts "calling Nokogiri directly" p Nokogiri.HTML(html)  wrapper =  puts "calling Nokogiri through wrapper" p wrapper.HTML(html)  puts "calling non-Nokogiri method with wrapper" p(begin     wrapper.scooby_dooby_doo!   rescue NoMethodError => e     [e.message, e.backtrace]   end) 
 % ruby nokogiri_wrapper.rb calling Nokogiri directly <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" ""> <html></html>  calling Nokogiri through wrapper call for :HTML, <html></html>, and no block forwarding to Nokogiri <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" ""> <html></html>  calling non-Nokogiri method with wrapper call for :scooby_dooby_doo!, , and no block falling back to default behaviour ["undefined method `scooby_dooby_doo!' for #<NokogiriWrapper:0x581f74>", ["nokogiri_wrapper.rb:12:in `method_missing'", "nokogiri_wrapper.rb:29"]] 
This is one way to implement the delegator pattern in ruby (another way is to use one of the Delegator classes)..
