I am looking for a Ruby equivalent to Perl’s FindBin module.
What I am trying to do is reference other scripts and data
relative to the Ruby script I am calling, not my current working
For example, in Perl I can say…
use FindBin qw($RealBin);
use lib “$RealBin/…/lib”;
or open(IN, “$RealBin/…/data/somefile.csv”)
If the script I am calling is /some/path/over/there/my_perl.pl,
then $RealBin becomes “/some/path/over/there”.
I have Googled about but can’t find what I am looking for.
A friend also suggested I use $0 and the fileutils module,
but I don’t see how that could work.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance,
