"numeric literal without digits" rake update_po error


#1

First off, I am using ruby 1.8.4 installed under Ubuntu Breezy Badger,
with ruby-gettext 1.5.0 installed as a gem.

I have found a weird behavior with rgettext parsing certain .rb files.
Whenever rgettext encounters a file containing an array whose first
element is being accessed in the code, I get the following error:
“numeric literal without digits”

For example, if I include the following code:
// test.rb
line

10 a = [1,2]
11 a[0]

and I run :

rgettext test.rb

I get the following result

SOME DESCRIPTIVE TITLE.

numeric literal without digits
Exit 1

If I remove that piece of code, it all runs smoothly.

Would anyone know what that error could be caused by ? Is there any way
to fix it ?

Hi,

Your problem is similer with this FAQ:
http://www.yotabanana.com/hiki/?ruby-gettext-faq#rgettext+or+rake+updatepo+doesn't+work+with+"numeric+literal+without+digits".

Actually, your code works on my linux box.
% ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i686-linux]

Confirm your ruby version again ?

I am on ruby 1.8.4:

ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [x86_64-linux]

I am on AMD64. Is this the problem ?

I guess there must be something wrong with my configuration. The ruby
binary compiled for my distrib is probably at fault. I’ll see in the
future if I have the same problem again.

Thanks for your help.

Maybe not. Your code as posted works fine for me, and:

$ uname -a
Linux monarch 2.6.9-1.667smp #1 SMP Tue Nov 2 15:09:11 EST 2004 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [x86_64-linux]

and I’m using gettext (1.5.0)
