controller inheritance problem

Hi Tia, Ruby doesn't support multiple inheritance but it supports what
is called a mixin module or simply a mixin. Please reference
"Programming Ruby" pages 118 - 120.

Good luck,

ok...

so i 'require' this module? it's not a module, it's a ApplicationController / PagesController class, it's not a module Something. i'm supposed to do require 'PagesController' and it will call all the methods from the pages-controller automaticly? ...doesn't seem to work just like that. . . unfortunately, i feel a little lost...

The point is, you're trying to inherit from two parents, which Ruby doesn't support. The way around this -- in Ruby -- is, as Conrad said, to use a module in which the methods you want are defined and then mix this in.
