.gemrc obscurity

Is it just me? I have to put a colon at the front of my attribute names
so they look like symbols to get anything to work in my .gemrc file.
i.e. this does NOT work:


gemhome: /home/pedzsan/ruby/gems
gempath:

  • /home/pedzsan/ruby/gems
  • /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

but this does:


:gemhome: /home/pedzsan/ruby/gems
:gempath:

  • /home/pedzsan/ruby/gems
  • /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8

I’m not sure if this:

http://rubygems.org/read/chapter/11

is suppose to be up to date or if this is a recently introduced bug or
if my brain is buggy.

Go straight to the source:

gem help env
