Hey all, This question could just as easily be a good fit for the RoR list, but I figured it's really more of a Ruby question, pertaining to a Rails-specific gem in this case. What I'm trying to do... is leverage Rails' activesupport gem. Specifically, the new Hash.from_xml method (and all of its related dependencies). > gem list | grep activesupport activesupport (1.3.1, 1.2.5) Check. This is where I'm a little befuddled as to how to do this the Ruby way... A simple test I've worked up to demonstrate whether or not this is working (hash_from_xml_test.rb): require 'rubygems' require_gem 'activesupport', '>= 1.3.1' require 'active_support' require 'active_support/core_ext' class HashFromXmlTest < Test::Unit::TestCase def test_hash_from_xml h = Hash.from_xml('<foo>bar</foo>') assert h.is_a?(Hash) end end Running this gives a "NoMethodError: undefined method `from_xml' for Hash:Class". Any ideas? Cheers, - Shanti http://onwebapps.com/

By the way, 'require_gem' is deprecated, use 'gem' > > Running this gives a "NoMethodError: undefined method `from_xml' for > Hash:Class". You probably have to load some other file. I'm sure grep will find it. If not, try the Rails list. -- Eric H. - email@example.com - http://blog.segment7.net I LIT YOUR GEM ON FIRE!
