Script/console not working after Rails 1.1 upgrade

Whenever I do script/console I get an error message:

Loading development enviroment.
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:151: in ‘parse_opts’ : undefined method
‘upcase’ for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb: in ‘setup’
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:54: in ‘start’
from c:/ruby/bin/irb:13

It used to work before I upgraded to Rails 1.1. Everything else
(webrick) works. I’ve a feeling that it’s because I’m using Ruby 1.82

Any Ideas?

Hello Alex,

Loading development enviroment.
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb:151: in ‘parse_opts’ : undefined method
‘upcase’ for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/init.rb: in ‘setup’

It used to work before I upgraded to Rails 1.1. Everything else
(webrick) works. I’ve a feeling that it’s because I’m using Ruby 1.82

Two things:

  1. Upgrade to Rails 1.8.4
  2. Edit vendor/rails/railties/lib/commands/console.rb and remove the
    “–prompt-mode simple” option from the last line:
    Index: vendor/rails/railties/lib/commands/console.rb
    ===================================================================
    — vendor/rails/railties/lib/commands/console.rb (revision 4097)

    else
    puts “Loading #{ENV[‘RAILS_ENV’]} environment.”
    end
    -exec “#{options[:irb]} #{libs} --prompt-mode simple”
    +exec “#{options[:irb]} #{libs}”

Using 1.8.4 is recommended, although I haven’t gone down that route yet.

Hope that helps !

I had the same problem
(http://livsey.org/2006/03/27/scriptconsole-with-edge-rails-on-windows-with-182/)

See this ticket and grab the irb.bat attached which should fix the
problem.

Surely you mean Ruby 1.8.4? :wink:

Upgrading to Rails 1.8.4 should fix the problem too.

May be waiting a while for that one though :op

Uh, yeah. You’re right. Can you see I think in Rails all the time ?

Chuckle all you want. I laughed out loud instead :slight_smile:

Bye !

I’m having problems running rails at all w/ ruby 1.8.4. It compiles
clean but it won’t run rails. Anyone else have problems like this?

Have you tried installing rails again after installing ruby?

Brett,

Thanks for the post, I recently checked your site,
www.adnexus-recruitment.nl, but didnt see many Ruby jobs. I was
wondering as I’m developing with a company in Amsterdam, have 5 years
J2EE and about 1 year in Rails, are you still looking for developers?

Best regards
Paul

Hi all,

I’m helping lots of developers and architects in The Netherlands find
jobs
using Ruby on Rails, if anyone is interested in contacting me for work -
permanent or contract based, I might be able to help.

Regards
Brett
