Hello, I have a rake task named setup, that depends on a file task that creates a yml file that has the path to ruby on the system. I would like setup to abort if the file is created and tell the user to edit the yml file to the actual ruby path. So far, the only way I can think of to do it is using the exit method. However I get the following message: $ rake setup (in /cygdrive/c/dev/ruby/project) property 'svn:ignore' set on '.' Please edit the ruby_env.yml file with the path to ruby on your system. Then run 'rake setup' again. rake aborted! exit ../rakefile:37:in `exit' However, the last three lines look like an error and would probably be confusing to the user. Is there a more elegant way to do this in rake? Thank you, Brian T.
