Syntax error in runner.rb

ruby script/runner ‘load “filename.rb”’*
fails with
./script/…/config/…/vendor/rails/railties/lib/commands/runner.rb:47:
(eval):1: compile error (SyntaxError)

Rails version is 1.2.0 on Linux

Any clues on what could be incorrect?

Thanks!

The * will presumably expand to everything in your current directory,
but because you’ve got some ruby code at the front it’s probably
trying to evaluate that list of files as if it were ruby, which is
unlikely to work. What were you actually trying to do?

ruby ./script/runner ‘load “filename.rb”’ also results in
from
./script/…/config/…/vendor/rails/railties/lib/commands/runner.rb:47
from ./script/runner:3

Note that * is not suffixed at end
