Ruby automatically detects and converts between small and large integersthere is no need to use a trailing L at any time. There is no j literal for imaginary numbers. Use the Complex class from complex.rb to work with complex numbers. Use to_i and to_f to convert values.

Number objects are instances of a class like the others, and you can define methods for them.


 class Fixnum  def winner?  self == 37  end end puts "Pick a number." if gets.to_i.winner?  puts "Right!" else  puts "Sorry." end 

This is an example of extending a built-in class with Ruby.
