Rakefile "$0" path in rake


#1

Is there a way to get the path to “itself” in a rakefile loaded by rake?

ie for:
rake --rakefile …/…/some/path/to/rakefile.rb


inside rakefile

myPath = # ???
p “running #{myPath}”

p “running #{myPath}”
try using the “magic variable” FILE ?

Sure.


inside rakefile

myPath = # ???

my_path = File.expand_path(FILE)

p “running #{myPath}”

Hope that helps.
