Strange IRB problem


#1

strange…
I’m on Vista and updated to Rails 2.2.2 and rubygems 1.3.1 with the
usual problem there.
…but fixed that pretty easily …(it’s well documented)…

everything was fine…but then I tried to use IRB.
in every shell I have (netbeans, git bash, windows shell)
I got this result:

$ script/console

‘require’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,

The syntax of the command is incorrect.
c:\projects\work\MathCraze>if FILE == $0

In Netbeans (6.5), while the Rails Console gives similiar output,
however,
the Ruby IRB sort of “worked”, but I had to load the environment
manually.
…see below…

=======================================================================
.irbrc successfully loaded

load ‘config/environment.rb’
load ‘config/environment.rb’

=> true

u = User.new
u = User.new

=> #<User id: nil, login: nil, crypted_password: nil, password_salt:
nil, persistence_token: nil, login_count: nil, last_request_at: nil,
last_login_at: nil, current_login_at: nil, last_login_ip: nil,
current_login_ip: nil, created_at: nil, updated_at: nil>

f = FlashCardGame.new
f = FlashCardGame.new

=> #<FlashCardGame:0x5c86d4c @y=98, @x=75, @answer=173>

=====================================================================

ANY Ideas?


#2

What version of Ruby are you running? From the output, it appears that
somebody’s commented out several DOS batch commands (@echo and
friends)
with #s in irb.bat.

Does calling irb directly from the command line work?
