IronRuby and RSpec


#1

Hi,

I’m having trouble running IronRuby with RSpec. I have a simple file
just to
test.

The last require statement is loading the .NET assembly from my project,
but
it’s not actually used in this example.

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘spec’
require ‘mscorlib’
require File.expand_path(File.join(%w{… bin x86 Debug FlightShooter}),
File.dirname(FILE))

describe ‘Test’ do
it “should do something” do
‘hello’.should == ‘hello’
end
end

The error I get is:

ir spec\test_spec.rb
IronRuby.Libraries:0:in ExpandPath': Invalid argument - test_spec.rb:0 (Errno::EINVAL) from :0:inexpand_path’
from example_group_methods.rb:103:in set_description' from example_group_methods.rb:166:insubclass’
from example_group_methods.rb:43:in describe' from example_group_factory.rb:25:increate_example_group’
from main.rb:24:in `describe’
from test_spec.rb:0

Any idea what could be going wrong?

Thanks,
Brandon

I think this is an issue with the current build which presents RSpec
from working.

Take a look at my article on
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd434651.aspx

I’ve created a build which should fix this bug -
http://blog.benhall.me.uk/downloads/IronRuby/MSDNBuild.zip - well,
more of a hack to prove the concept works :slight_smile:

Let me know how you get on.
