Rake does recognize "rake examples_with_rcov"

Hi,

Q1 - Know why rake doesn’t recognize “rake examples_with_rcov” per
http://rspec.info/documentation/tools/rcov.html ?

Q2 - Also when I run “rake spec:rcov” it seems to give me the same as
if I just run “autotest” or “rake spec”. I was expecting a heap of
pointers to code I haven’t tested?

I think the point of that page is to show you how to write your own
rake tasks that use RSpec and RCov. You won’t get that rake task by
default in your own application but you could run it on the RSpec
source code by setting your current directory into the directory
where you’ve downloaded the RSpec gem or plugin.

Q2 - Also when I run “rake spec:rcov” it seems to give me the same as
if I just run “autotest” or “rake spec”. I was expecting a heap of

Try looking in the ‘coverage’ folder beneath the directory where you
ran the rake task. You should find all sorts of goodies in there.

re “ry looking in the ‘coverage’ folder” => Wow! Great stuff.

Is there a way to automatically launch a browser to the index page
after running “rake spec:rcov”

Tks

rake spec:rcov && open coverage/index.html

thanks - oh dear, I’m seeing a lot of red in the rcov reports :slight_smile:
