I am confused about the code on page 63. It says:

  def initialize(title, price)
    @title, @price = title, price

Could someone explain what this is doing? The php code doesn’t reference anything like @price = title. I know I am just confused.

Thanks for any help,

So I guess I wasn’t worthy of a response. I asked on another forum that was actually helpful, and thought I would post what it is here for people that come to this site.

I was mistaken that @price was being assigned to title, but actually it is @title = title @price = price

just in one line of code to make it easier.

Thanks for helping me decide where not to come for help,

book is sold, no need to help people after that…
