Hi, after failing with a ruby gems install, I've just done a manual
install of PDF::Writer (including the dependancies: Transaction::Simple
1.3.0  color-tools 1.3.0) and created the following in a Rails

require 'pdf/writer'

def pdf_test
  p =

and I get the following error: "uninitialized constant PDF"

Anyone know what the problem is?... the installs went fine.

I'm on Mac OS X 10.4.5

Thanks, Ray

Unit tests?

I'm smelling a path problem on the install.  I'm on windows though, so
issues are differnet, but I also toy with Ubuntu and I've been burned on
path issue a few times.

Hope that helps.
