We are trying to get a pre-existing ruby on rails site up and running
(we just got these files sent to us).
We are new to ruby so we have a new install (we’re running 1.8.6,
patch level 0).
We have already had to update the code in this app from ‘require_gem’
to ‘gem’ and now we are getting variable not initialized errors. We’re
thinking we’re running a different version of Ruby than where this
site was hosted before…
Was there a previous ruby version that was by default was loose and
allowed you ‘spring to life’ variables? Is there a way to tell ruby to
be loose about its variable declaration?
thanks for the help.
