Re : One-Click Ruby Installer 1.8.5-23 released

Curt,

The tab completion still doesn’t work within IRB and the SciTE version
is still the old 1.67.

Tab competion is working for me. Did you require “irb\completion” (tab
completion is not enabled by default)? If not try starting irb like
this:

irb -r irb/completion

You’re right about SciTE. I’m not sure how that happenned… really
strange!!!

Curt,

The TAB completion in IRB works indeed with :
irb -r irb/completion

But what is strange is that I always just launch “irb” without any
argument and the completion works with previous versions of installer
(e.g. 1.8.5-21 and 1.8.5-22 rc3).

I’m just wondering also why
ruby -e “r = require ‘readline’; puts r”
returns true

while the same code within IRB displays false.

Hmmm… I never knew that. I don’t know what could be different.

Don’t know the answer to this either.

Is another release coming with the right SciTE?

Is there a feature in there that you really need?

That is simply because IRB has already required ‘readline’ while it was
starting up.

I figured out what happenned, it was a procedural error in my build
process.
I hate to do it just for this, but I’ll make another release today.

Other than the latest SciTE, no … is SciTE capable of “updating”
itself?

Alexey,

That makes sense.
But why within irb, load ‘readline’ raises a LoadError ?
I thought that load and require are equivalent except that load always
load the file.

No, its not. But I decided to do another release anyway. I don’t like
the
fact that the release notes say that it has SciTE 1.72 when it really
doesn’t.

SciTE doesn’t do auto updates, but if you download the latest version
(1.72) (or
which ever version you want) you can just drop the new SciTE.exe and
the SciLexer.dll
into your existing SciTE dir.

Cheers

because load() needs a file path (absolute or relative, with .rb
extension included), whereas require() adds .rb extension to the name,
and then looks for the file in all paths listed in $:
