Dave, Thank you for you great work. I seem to be stuck on understanding one chart from Lesson 1 (25:05). I (kind of) understand that Dave is a class object not an instantiated object. But what order of tracing would Dave.dup() take? The two parallel hierarchies confuse me as to what they are representing. Why not a single chain? I keep wanting to see Object (super) above class (sub).

Object ____ class ____ | super: | | super: | | class: |<– | class: |<—- | ——– | | | ——– | | | dup() | | | new() | | | frozen?()| | | | | ____ | ____ | | | Dave ____ | anon..____ | | super:.–|–’ | super:.—-|–’ | class: –|——–>| class: | | ——– | | ———- | | | | say_hello()| | methods..| | | ____ ____

Thanks for your time. Bob

I hope you recognize this chart it looked great in you editor window before I submitted it. In fact it still looks great when I go to edit it. So, I am not sure how to fix the appearance.
