Hi all, I'm trying to figure out how to setup a task that temporarily changes to a specific directory, runs the tests, and returns to the current directory when finished. In case you're wondering why, I have some test cases that create temporary files (in the setup method), use those temp files in the tests themselves, and then delete them (in the teardown method). While I could jump through hoops to make sure the proper path of the temp files are found within each test case, I'd rather not. I was hoping to do something like this: Rake::TestTask.new('test_file') do |test| Dir.chdir('test/core/File') do test.test_files = FileList['*/*.rb'] end end Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to work, and I'm not sure why. Any ideas? Thanks, Dan PS - On an unrelated note, I *hate* this new google groups interface. I can't see my subscribed groups on the same page (it's an extra click away now), and there's no more "preview" option in the compose window. Oh, and the color scheme is depressing. BARF!
