The following is the beginning of a Java-esque new operator.
def new o
o.class == Class ? o.new : o
Used with the String class you can do:
new String # => ""
new String('foo') # => "foo"
But this is not the case with a class like Object:
new Object # okay
new Object() # error
My question is, what are classes like Array and String defining that
Object isn't? And how can I define my own? Thanks in advanced.
