The facet gems currently installed my system are
facets (2005.10.30, 2005.10.15, 1.0.2)
The proverbial Zoo-of-More for Ruby
Vast collection of atomic core extension methods.
Large collection of additional classes, modules and microframeworks.
If I open a new IRB session type a “require” line without first a
“require_gem”, the method added in comes from (facets 2005.10.30)
But if I do a require_gem statement prior to the same require line, the
method comes from (facets_core 1.0.2)
There seems to be a (dangerous?) mixing of lines of gems here. Also I
been thinking “require_gem” was optional and only needed when a version
other than the most recent was needed.
Are ‘facets_core’/‘facets_more’ the active lines now, and is it
uninstall the gems from the old ‘facets’ line [including saying Y those
In general is the “require_gem” line necessary when using gems and an
to omit it even when one just wants to use the most recent version?
