Help with LOAD_PATH

Hi, I’m in troubles with this variable. I’m running a Linux OS, after
logging in, if I type:

echo $LOAD_PATH
.:/home/eyp/Desarrollo/ruby/lib:/home/eyp/Desarrollo/ruby/lib/sybase:/usr/lib/ruby

then I go into irb:

irb
irb(main):001:0> $LOAD_PATH
=> ["/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8",
“/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux”, “/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby”,
“/usr/lib/site_ruby/1.8”, “/usr/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux”,
“/usr/lib/site_ruby”, “/usr/lib/ruby/1.8”,
“/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-linux”, “.”]
irb(main):002:0>

which LOAD_PATH variable is showed in irb?

Ruby’s LOAD_PATH is a combination of a set of default directories
determined when Ruby is configured/installed, the directories (if any)
defined by the $RUBYLIB environment variable, and any directories
specified by -I options on the Ruby command line. It has nothing to do
with any $LOAD_PATH environment variable.

Solved. I had to export RUBYLIB to modify LOAD_PATH.
