'$' placeholder naming can confuse your runner

Hi guys, I’m facing a strange behavior that smells like a bug.

consider this scenario:

Scenario: I’m cool
Given that I am cool 4 times out of 7

and this step:

Given(“that I am cool $n times out of $n_total”) do |n, n_total|

end

When running my story, this step is considered as PENDING.
If I change the name of the second placeholder to $total, the step
runs fine (as it should, given that it’s implemented).

My suspect is that when placeholders share a common prefix, the step
cannot be recognized correctly.
Anyone having the same issue?

btw: quoting the placeholders doesn’t change this behavior

keep on with the great work,
Paolo

It is the common prefix, not the underscore.
With $n and $nnn or $ntotal still fails.

Paolo

What about when you make it $ntotal? Is it the common first letter or
the underscore?

Thank you for your quick fix man!
What if I’m testing a standalone app instead of a rails one? (I bet I
need to wait for the next rspec release right?)

Hey Paolo,

I’ve fixed this. Update your rspec plugin and it should work fine now.

git clone git://github.com/dchelimsky/rspec.git
cd rspec
rake gem
rake install_gem

TaDa!
