Newbie : how to require to lib from spec under autotest?

Hello all,

I have the RSpec sample in ./rspec_bowling, with…
./rspec_bowling/lib/bowling.rb
./rspec_bowling/spec/spec.opts
./rspec_bowling/spec/bowling_spec.rb

when I autotest, I get this:
$autotest
loading autotest/rspec
/usr/local/bin/ruby -S
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.1.3/bin/spec -O spec/spec.opts
spec/spec_helper.rb spec/bowling_spec.rb
F

ArgumentError in ‘Bowling should score 0 for gutter game’
wrong number of arguments (1 for 0)
[…snip…]
Finished in 0.254 seconds

1 example, 1 failure
/usr/local/bin/ruby -S
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.1.3/bin/spec -O spec/spec.opts
spec/bowling_spec.rb
*./spec/bowling_spec.rb:3:in `require’: no such file to load – bowling
(LoadError)

  •    from ./spec/bowling_spec.rb:3
    

My RUBYPATH = …/lib:./lib:$PATH, which caused autotest to load the 1st
run
correctly.

Could someone help me understand how to correctly set the search path
for
repeated loading under autotest ?

Thanks!

This is the error - no path problem. There is a method expecting no
arguments that is being called with one.

Sure - that test fails - but why do we see the next result? (see
below) What is rails doing in the background?

This is not a rails app, it’s standalone ruby.

And yes, as I highlighted,the interesting bit is the second run where
instead ‘require’ fails.

Thanks in advance for further discussion!

Hello All,

Thanks for your tips.
In the end, what I needed was a lesson on Ruby Load Path. Pickaxe 2
pp172
“Where Ruby finds its modules” gave me the answer. I needed to set
environment variable RUBYLIB

export RUBYLIB=./lib:…/lib

so that

$ruby -e ‘puts $:’
./lib
…/lib
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/i386-cygwin
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby
/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8
/usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-cygwin
.
Now autotest gets the proper require twice in a row, when the spec file
reads :

require ‘bowling’

Hope this helps you, next grasshopper of the RSpec FU!

Instead of setting an environment variable before running the app, you
can modify the load path in your code with:
$:.unshift(*[’./lib’, ‘…/lib’])

Sweet! That’s a cool command. Thanks for posting!
