acts_like?

Importance_1
acts_like?(duck) public

A duck-type assistant method. For example, Active Support extends Date to define an acts_like_date? method, and extends Time to define acts_like_time?. As a result, we can do x.acts_like?(:time) and x.acts_like?(:date) to do duck-type-safe comparisons, since classes that we want to act like Time simply need to define an acts_like_time? method.
