Misunderstanding init_engine.rb?


#1

It seems to me that the init_engine.rb file must not be getting
processed, or – just as likely – I’m misunderstanding something.

For example, in init_engine.rb:

module PSitsnotEngine
module VERSION
Major = 0 # change implies compatibility breaking with previous
versions
Minor = 1 # change implies backwards-compatible change to API
Release = 0 # incremented with bug-fixes, updates, etc.
end

Configuration – can be overridden in environment.rb

config :max_output_size, 640
config :max_cache_size, 1024
config :cache_file_type, ‘png’
end

Then, script/console:

PSitsnotEngine.class
=> Module

PSitsnotEngine::VERSION.class
NameError: uninitialized constant VERSION
from /opt/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-1.3.1/
lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:123:in `const_missing’
from (irb):2

PSitsnotEngine.config :max_output_size
=> nil

PSitsnotEngine::CONFIG
=> {}

What am I missing here? The “config” statements work find if I put
them in environment.rb.
