IRB require issues


#1

is there a reason why saying require ‘net/http’ would return false?

i’ve been trying to figure out what’s wrong with my installation, but i
see no reason why it refuses to load that one library, it works for
everything else i can think of…

thanks

False means that’s already required.

Usually, this is because it is already loaded …

irb(main):001:0> $LOADED_FEATURES.grep /net/
=> [“net/protocol.rb”, “net/http.rb”]
irb(main):002:0> require ‘net/http’ #already loaded, so should return
false
=> false

Nice one Todd,
I didn’t know about $LOADED_FEATURES.
Thanks
