Load "file-name" question

Hello all,

This is my first post to this forum and I am a ruby nood who usually
does C# development.

I am working on a little app and have seperated my classes into
different files. I put all of those file into a directory called lib.
like this

trunk
-----lib
-------JobList.rb
-----tests
-------JobListTest.rb
-----testfiles

In the test dir I have a file that does some unit testing. If I put

load ‘…/lib/JobList’

It works. But I am thinking that maybe this isn’t the best “Ruby way” to
do it.
Amy advise on how I should set up my project and use the load method?

Hmm. I just noticed that maybe I should put a single directory under
trunk as the root dir of my project?
BTW you can see all of this on Google code if it helps @

Thanks in advance.

EDIT

I should have said require “…/lib/JobList”

I am using require not load. Sorry for any confusion.

thanks

Its looks good. I cant really see the problem. As far as i know
filesystems use ‘…’ notation no matter what the operating system. It’s
not a long line and if it works it’s good. And its perfectly readable.

Dont worry about it.

load ‘…/lib/JobList’

I usually handle this by having a file ‘test/boottest.rb’ that looks
like this (along with whatever other project-specific bits and pieces I
might need across all test files):

$app_dir = File.expand_path(File.join(File.dirname(FILE), ‘…’))
$:.unshift($app_dir)

That means that I can handle all the requires as though from the project
root, so the top of a test file might look like this:

require ‘boottest’
require ‘test/TestModules’
require ‘lib/JobList’

It simplifies things a little, because then there’s less confusion as to
which files are being required.
