Rails does not auto-re-read files in /lib in devel mode?


#1

In development mode my understanding is that Rails re-reads every file
each time a client does something in order to make sure any new code is
implemented. Bt it doesn’t seem to do this with files in /lib - is there
a way to make sure it does?

That’s not exact, by reductio ad absurdum :-).

Which version of Rails are you using?

Rails 1.2 reloads files that are autoloaded. If you require the file
specifically it won’t reload it.

Ok, that makes sense. I am indeed using require. Thankyou very much.
