Can't put shared example group in its own file

Any ideas? All I’d like to do is have two specs in different files use
the same shared example group. I saw a similar thread about autotest,
but I am not using that. [Sorry for the double post on Google G.;
didn’t realize at the time it was a read-only group.]

Don’t name this file ^^ ending with _spec.rb - that is the default
pattern that RSpec looks for specs in, so it’s getting loaded as a spec.
Name it something like shared_examples_for_stuff.rb.

HTH,

I’m sure David already replied about this - don’t name your shared
examples group *_spec.rb otherwise RSpec will load it and try to run it
as a spec file.
