How to use it: require


#1

I have a custom file filled with a word list. How do call it in my main
program.
I have tried “require wordlist” but ruby can’t find the file
In C/C++ I would have used Include<wordlist.h> or for python I would
have used “import wordlist” so long as the wordlist was placed in the
same directory I am good. So how do I do this using ruby

Before I forget I want to thank everyone for their help. I am really
liking Ruby and I finally understand how to use symbols

Call the file wordlist.rb, then require it like this:

require “wordlist”

require is a method call that takes a string.

require ‘wordlist’

‘wordlist’ needs to be in some directory that is part of the Ruby
interpreter’s current load path.

Great! Now learn to abuse them!
