Override require with an array an variable length argument list, which
will
be an array in the function

   packages.each{ | pack |

Iterate through the list where pack is the current item.

           super( pack );

Send the current item to the ogiginal require.

   }

end
require(‘rubygems’,‘actionmailer’)

Which allows you to require more than one item at a time.
Hope this helps.
