Include own methods in IRB

Hello!

My question is very simple : when I launch IRB, I normally have to
rewrite a bunch of methods each time. How could I set IRB in order to
automatically include classes and methods I normally write?

Should I create a gem and require it each time?

Hi,

You could simply write a script and require it on startup with the -r
parameter:

irb -r C:/myscript.rb

If you write this line into a batch file (or the like), you don’t even
have to type it in.

There’s also an initialization file for IRB:
