RSpec 2 not finding specs from subdirectories when trying to run specs from there

Hi!

When having a file structure like this:
project
-spec
-subdir
-my_spec.rb

and then being in directory “project” and running command rspec spec
everything works as expected. If running rspec spec/subdir to run
only specs under spec/subdir then it doesn’t work - it finds 0
examples. It works as expected in RSpec 1. What do we do wrong?

I run subdirectories quite often and haven’t seen this issue. What’s in
your .rspec and spec/spec_helper.rb files? Also, which version of
rspec-2 are you using?

Try this in your spec helper file:

Dir[Rails.root.join(“spec/factories/**/*.rb”)].each {|f| require f}

I created a really simple example as shown above and this doesn’t work
for me - e.g. no spec_helper or .rspec files in use. I’m on Windows,
could that be the culprit (it happens on two machines)? Here is some
additional output:

It is indeed related with Windows!

It needs path to be specified with unix-slashes…
