Are you sure you are not confusing it with Date.today? I was not
aware that there is a Time.today. There is a Time.now.

On my dev Machine:

$ ./script/console
Loading development environment (Rails 2.3.3)

Time.now
=> Fri Aug 28 22:51:16 0200 2009

Time.today
=> Fri Aug 28 00:00:00 0200 2009

I do admit there is a problem with the time returned, but still the
method call worked.

Posted viahttp://www.ruby-forum.com/.

Whats are the respective Ruby versions? Time.today exists on 1.8.7,
but not 1.9.1 (or 1.8.6 to my knowledge)

Damn that’s the answer!

You can do something like this (utilizing a Rails time method):

class Time
def self.today
Time.now.beginning_of_day
end
end

Time.today
=> Mon Aug 31 00:00:00 +1200 2009

Date.today is part of Ruby standard library (not added by Rails).

Time has no today method, today is a Date method added by rails, as in
Date.today.

The method that looks like the same in time is Time.now.

Hi, here’s my results for the various Ruby implementations:

Ruby 1.8.6:

Time.now
=> Sun Aug 30 13:49:32 -0700 2009

Time.today
NoMethodError: undefined method `today’ for Time:Class
from (irb):2

Date.today
=> Sun, 30 Aug 2009

quit

Ruby 1.8.7:

Time.now
=> 2009-08-30 13:51:31 -0700

Time.today
NoMethodError: undefined method today' for Time:Class from (irb):2 from /opt/local/bin/irb:12:in

quit

Ruby 1.9.1:

Time.now
=> 2009-08-30 13:54:31 -0700

Time.today
NoMethodError: undefined method today' for Time:Class from (irb):2 from /opt/local/bin/irb:12:in

quit

Good luck,

What does the RUBY_VERSION say?

It looks like you accidentally ran the wrong IRB when testing this
out, as your Ruby “1.8.7” and 1.9.1 are both the same executable (/opt/
local/bin/irb).

But Keiran’s suggestion isn’t bad, might want to work a
method_defined? in with that though.

Hi, it’s actually two different machines.

And this is me speaking apparently too soon

from my laptop (Kubuntu 9.03)

irb(main):006:0> RUBY_VERSION
=> “1.8.7”
irb(main):007:0> Time.today
NoMethodError: undefined method `today’ for Time:Class
from (irb):7
irb(main):008:0>

from my desktop (also Kubuntu 9.03)

RUBY_VERSION
=> “1.8.7”

Time.today
=> Sun Aug 30 00:00:00 -0400 2009

So a gem must be adding this somewhere, I’m too lazy to look where
right now though

As someone told me before, I need to Google more :\
