New to ruby: uninitialized constant

I have a program the simulates the knights tour problem. I made 2
classes, 1 called ‘Location’ which simulates a location on a chess board
and one called ‘KnightsTour’ which actually performs the knights tour.
Then I have a main.rb file which just creats a knights tour object
(KnightsTour.new) and calls a method on that object. But whenever i try
to run it, I get the following error:

C:\NetBeansWorkspace\KnightsTour\lib\main.rb:3:in `const_missing’:
uninitialized constant KnightsTour (NameError)
from C:\NetBeansWorkspace\KnightsTour\lib\main.rb:8

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you “require” the files containing the other two classes? Ruby will
not search for them automatically the way, for example, Java does.

Yes I did

Then it is hard to tell what is going on without seeing your code. This
error generally means you either have not made the class available or
there is a typo somewhere, assuming KnightsTour is a class. Or possibly
you are using it before it is defined.
