Spreadsheet module tests fail

I’m trying to use the spreadsheet/excel module by Daniel B., but
it’s failing its tests on the olewriter. Any thoughts?

ruby test/ts_all.rb

Loaded suite test/ts_all

…E/tmp/spreadsheet-0.3.4/lib/spreadsheet/olewriter.rb:22:
[BUG] rb_sys_fail() - errno == 0
ruby 1.8.1 (2003-12-25) [sparc-solaris2.8]

Here’s the code around line 22 of olewriter.rb

 8  class OLEWriter < IO

10     # Not meant for public consumption
11     MaxSize    = 7087104
12     BlockSize  = 4096
13     BlockDiv   = 512
14     ListBlocks = 127

17     attr_reader :root_start, :size_allowed

19     # Accept an IO object, a fileno, or a String
20     def initialize(arg, &block)
21        if arg.kind_of?(String)
22           super(File.open(arg, "w+").fileno, "w+", &block)
23        elsif arg.respond_to?(:fileno)
24           super(arg.fileno, "w+", &block)
25        else
26           super(arg, "w+", &block)
27        end
28        binmode

First, I no longer maintain this package. It’s now maintained by
Hannes W…

Second, you’ve got an old version of spreadsheet. Use 0.3.5, available
at http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=678&release_id=6674

Third, you’ve got an old version of Ruby. Even blastwave has a 1.8.4
package if you want a more recent version. Or, you could build 1.8.5
by hand.

Well, I realized that 0.3.5 was out, however, I could not find a way to
download it. As it turns out, I was just not noticing that the
rubyforge spreadsheet entry had the code. When I look at the main
spreadsheet page the download link says:

spreadsheet parseexcel-0.5.1.1 August 29, 2006 Release Notes -
Monitor this package Download

I was under the impression that parseexcel was a different module and
didn’t realize that once I clicked the link to download that I would be
presented with the latest version of the spreadsheet module.

As to my version of Ruby… well, that won’t change anytime soon.

Thanks, the new version seems to pass the tests.
