Assert2 0.3.2 and ActiveSupport 2.1.2


#1

I’ve found a conflict between assert2 and ActiveSupport. Both define
the
method in_groups_of() with different signatures and semantics. It shows
up in
Ultrasphinx when I run my tests. I’ve reproduced it in the console, see
below. Any suggests on how to force the desired in_groups_of() method?

TIA,
Jeffrey

I find it hard to beleive that I am the only one using both UltraSphinx
and
assert{2.0}. To make the question more general, how do I in Ruby
disambiguate
method calls? I.e., given two methods with identical names, say meth,
in different
namespace, e.g., NS1 and NS2 how do a force a call to one of them?
Using the
example below, I’d like to call

a.NS1::in_groups_of(2) or maybe a.NS1.in_groups_of(2)

TIA,
Jeffrey

My solution is to delete the in_groups_of method in the assert{2.0}. It
appears to be just a special case of the code in ActiveSupport.
