association extend rails 2 feature

I've been looking on the internet for the feature in rails where you can
specify an association extend module on the actual class.

So for example

class Printer < AR::Base
  some_association_extend_method_that_i_cant_figure_out do
    def [](value)
class Product < AR::Base
  has_many :printers

product.printers["name"] # <-- should return the printer if it exists
Product["name"] # <-- should work as well.

Does anyone know what im talking about? I saw it once, I can't find it

Maybe you're looking for has_finder or, in Rails 2.1, named_scope.

yes thats what i was looking for. thx.
