Running an entire #describe block


#1

I know that it’s possible to run a single spec example (IE: #it block)
with the -e option for script/spec . Is it possible to run an entire
context (IE: #describe block)?

Cheers,
Nick

Use the -l option to specify the line number of the describe call.

Hi Mark. I’ve tried -l (that’s a lower-case “L”), but it never
executes any specs. Am I using it wrong?:

Thanks,

I have to admit that I don’t use -l to run a describe block very often,
but
it does seem to work when I do. However, after playing around a bit, I
found
that -l works on the innermost block, but not on enclosing blocks (0
examples), which matches what you’re seeing. So I guess it only works
with
the innermost block. Rats.

Thanks for trying that out for me, Mark. The -l option does in fact
work for me when I specify the line number for an inner-most
#desrcibe . One of these days when I upgrade to the latest version of
rspec, I’ll log a ticket in Lighthouse.
