Method deprecated or moved

This method is deprecated or moved on the latest stable version. The last existing version (v3.1.0) is shown here.

These similar methods exist in v4.1.8:

base_class() public

Returns the base AR subclass that this class descends from. If A extends AR::Base, A.base_class will return A. If B descends from A through some arbitrarily deep hierarchy, B.base_class will return A.

If B < A and C < B and if A is an abstract_class then both B.base_class and C.base_class would return B as the answer since A is an abstract_class.
