In Cucumber...
Is there a simple way to find out what file a scenario is defined in?

I'd like to use this information to load a set of fixtures depending on
which feature is being run.  So if I'm running the 'login.feature' file,
I'd like to be able to load the set of fixtures under
'/fixtures/login/*.yml'

No, but there is a dirty way:

Before do |scenario|
  f = scenario.instance_variable_get('@feature')
  if f
    puts f.file
  end
end

The scenario variable will be a Scnario, ScenarioOutline or ExampleCells
instance. In the latter case there is no @feature ivar.
Please file a feature request (or better yet - a patch) if you want to
see
this improved.

Also take a look at this ticket - maybe a cleaner way to achieve what
you
want.
