Out of curiosity: how does Ruby manages inner classes like this?

class MyClass(object):
    def __init__(self,x):
        class InnerClass(object):
            def __init__(innerself,a):
                innerself.a=a 
		self.b=2*a
        self.x=InnerClass(x)

c=MyClass(1)

print c.x.a # =>1
print c.b # =>2
