I'm at kind of a weird roadblock right now. I'm fairly new at rails, but what I am trying to do right now seems too simple to not work. I installed the "spawn" plugin using the following: ruby script/plugin install http://spawn.rubyforge.org/svn/spawn I verified that the plugin was properly installed into vendor/plugins/ spawn. I tried using the code snippets that the author provided: spawn do logger.info("I feel sleepy...") sleep 11 logger.info("Time to wake up!") end and I get the error: undefined method "spawn". From what I understand, since it is in the plugins directory, I do not need to require or otherwise initialize this plugin (although I did try requiring it). I am getting the same error in my application and when using 'ruby script/console' I don't see what I am doing wrong. Does anyone have any ideas?

I struggled with this for an hour, and finally found out that it works if I put the include statement in the controller (I had it in the model, where my code is). I'm not sure what the mechanics are that cause this, but at least I'll know for the future. On Oct 9, 1:54 am, Frederick C. <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Spawn is a module, the method you were interested in was a module in that method therefore you need to include that module. Fred Sent from my iPhone
