I’m fairly new to Ruby. I typically code in C++. I need a way of initializing a global variable that doesn’t get reset every time I run the code. Like a count for example that isn’t reset to 0 when updating code.

What are some best practices when it comes to variables that need to retain their values when updating the code?
