Ruby debuger on Windows


#1

Can somebody point out, why on Windows
ruby -r debug my_ruby_script.rb

start in “ubygems.rb” and not in “my_ruby_script.rb”. With “start” I
mean, that I expected to see the first line of my file as the current
statement.

PS I’m using ruby 1.8.2-14 (2004-12-25) - installed from
OneClickInstaller.

That is due to RUBYOPT environment variable.

First unset RUBYOPT
and run
ruby -r debug my_ruby_script.rb

You can do it with one line
ruby -e “ENV[‘RUBYOPT’]=nil;system(‘ruby -rdebug my_ruby_script.rb’)”

Hope this helps,

Oh… figured out myself… The problem was in RUBY_OPT environment
variable set up to “rubygems” (multiple times: "rubygems rubygems … "
I think its a bug in OneClickInstaller for ruby 1.8.2-14)

BTW, I had problems with Rails (actually with ActiveRecord) from version
0.14.1 with ruby 1.8.2-14… After upgrading to 1.8.2-15 problems gone…
