Suddenly test::unit is failing for me.  The following 2-line script
comes up with

"testu.rb:2: undefined method `assert' for main:Object (NoMethodError)"

testu.rb contains:

 1: require 'test/unit'
 2: assert(1==1)

What have I broken or forgot?
ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [i386-mswin32]

It fails the same way under irb.

Hi Warren,

normally the assert methods are accessible in subclasses of
Test::Unit::TestCase. You could change your code to

   require 'test/unit'
   class AssertionTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
     def test_assert

If you want to use assertions outside of testcases, look at module
