I’m trying to setup a Rake script to run all my IronRuby rspec tests.
The tests need to have access to internal constructors and methods.
IronRuby supports this with the -X:PrivateBinding switch on ir.exe.
So, for example, if my test is called some_tests.rb, the following
ir -X:PrivateBinding -S spec some_tests.rb
However, when I try to run rake that way it bombs out.
To repo, follow these steps:
Write a rakefile like the following:
task :test do
puts “TEST PASSED”
Running this command will succeed:
ir -S rake test
Running this command will fail:
ir -X:PrivateBinding -S rake test
with the following error: C:/IronRuby
error, unexpected `.’
I’m running IronRuby 188.8.131.52 on .NET 4.0.30319.1 with rake 0.8.7.
I also posted this question to Stack Overflow:
@ironshay suggested I post it here as well.
