The local filetree corresponding to source control is not in the same location on all machines. Therefore, the needed Ruby $LOAD_PATH varies from one machine to another. I can control this from a script of course. I can, for example, addthis to the top of a script that's two levels below the 'root': require 'pathname' home_path = Pathname.new(File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), '../..')).realpath $LOAD_PATH.push home_path unless ($LOAD_PATH.index(home_path)) This works, but is it best? Is there best practice for this sort ofthing? Thanks, Burdette

Since the load path is constant on a machine, I'd argue for setting RUBYLIB instead of modifying every script.
