Require problem

I’m trying to use the WWW::Mechanize library and I created a short
script for it. When I run it I get an error saying:

./getfindata.rb:3:in `require’: No such file to load – mechanize
from ./getfindata.rb:3

caused by the line:

require ‘mechanize’

which I got from an online example.

But if I do a gem list I see:

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

mechanize (0.4.0, 0.3.1)
Mechanize provides automated web-browsing

narf (0.7.3)
NARF is a replacement for and derivative of the Ruby CGI
library. It
exists to trivialize web development .

sources (0.0.1)
This package provides download sources for remote gem installation

So I’m clueless as to what is wrong.

Thanks for any help you can give me!



First try to require rubygems and then require mechanize, like this:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘mechanize’

use WWW::Mechanize
