Regular Expression Too Big

Hi Guys,

Not sure exactly what happened or what caused the error, but when I
try to start my server or do a ‘rails -v’, I’m getting these strange

$ rails -v
1.8/rubygems.rb:75:in require': /System/Library/Frameworks/ Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/universal-darwin9.0/ rbconfig.rb:165: regular expression too big: /\$\$|\$\(([^()]+)\)|\$\ {([^{}]+)\}/ (SyntaxError) /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/ 1.8/universal-darwin9.0/rbconfig.rb:168: regular expression too big: / \A[^:]+(?=(?::(.*?)=(.*))?\z)/ from /System/Library/Frameworks/ Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:75 from /usr/bin/rails:9:inrequire’
from /usr/bin/rails:9
$ ruby script/server

expression too big: /^[^#]RAILS_GEM_VERSION\s=\s*["’]([!~<>=]*
\s*[\d.]+)["’]/ (SyntaxError)
from script/server:2

It says something about the regular expression being too big? This
happens in all checkouts of my code now, and even different projects.
The only thing I did was did a pretty big commit to svn.

Any ideas?


if thats the ONLY thing you did, have you tried rolling back a couple
