I’ve found an intriguing issue with Rake. I develop under OSX and all
my tests pass when I run ‘rake test’. I recently tried this on
Windows XP using InstantRails and a few of the unit tests failed.
Interestingly, if I manually execute rake_test_loader.rb with the same
parameters as Rake itself uses (or at least, what Rake prints to the
console), the tests pass fine, e.g:
$ ruby -Ilib;test “C:/InstantRails/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/
rake-0.7.3/lib/rake/rake_test_loader.rb” “test/unit/test_1.rb” “test/
Would anyone be able to enlighten me as to what Rake is doing
differently which might explain this behaviour?
