I’m doing a fork/exec on a .rb file in the same directory as the parent
.rb. On two systems, this has worked. On the third, to which I just
moved, I get
./ecod-poll:254:in `exec’: No such file or directory -
I’ve put debugging puts’es into the code, and the path I’m using looks
OK. Feeding the path from the puts to “ls -l” shows that the file exists
and is world-readable and world-executable.
Would someone please help me figure this out? No doubt it’s something
dumb, but I’m just not seeing it.

My source on the non-working system is a Subversion checkout of what’s
on the working one. Subversion has (I’m pretty sure) successfully
transported between two working systems.
I am also using ActiveRecord standalone, and I’m sure none of the MySQL
and supporting versions match.
