Requiring Files while working Remotely

Hello,

I’m trying to execute a script on my local machine which requires a file
on a remote machine. When i run the program on my local machine i get
an error saying that ruby couldn’t load a file that is being required by
file on remote machine; both of these files are in the same directory
(on the remote machine).
Here’s the error:
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
gem_original_require': no such file to load -- ExcelModule.rb (LoadError) from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:inrequire’
from \3833-9-CCC-w520\AutoLib\TestBed.rb:49
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:in
gem_original_require' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:27:inrequire’
from Registration.rb:7

Everything works fine when i work directly on the remote machine.

Both of the machines have same version of ruby. Both are windows xp
sp2.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Anybody?

The regular library loading mechanism assumes a local filesystem.
Just copy that missing file locally.

PS: Loading a remote library would involve two steps:

  1. downloading the actual file

  2. eval’ing its contents somehow

That’s technically possible, but you’d need to do it by hand. I think
this technique is not what you are looking for nonetheless, copying
the missing file to that second machine is the easiest approach if
that’s valid.

You’re trying to load from “\3833-9-CCC-w520\AutoLib\TestBed.rb”? Try
mapping the remote directory to a drive letter.

And it (ruby library loading mechanism) works as designed. What i did
was change the path to the file being required on remote machine.

So on remote machine i changed the driver script like this:
require “c:/lib/file.rb” changed it to -> require
“\\machine-address\lib\file.rb”

Thanks for your help.

If the remote file is requiring other files in the same directory,
you’ll probably need to add the path to your list:
$:.unshift File.join(File.dirname(FILE),".")
