What is wrong with my ruby install, or is it me?

Hello,

I am trying to put together my first ruby app, little database
and a command line client. I want to use sqllite for the db and
have 3.3.6 installed on a 32bit redhat 5 box along with ruby 1.8.5.
After looking around it looked like the best way to do this was with
rubygem which I installed, 0.9.4, along with the gem of sqlite3-ruby,
1.2.1, and I can not get the require to work:

[[email protected] tmp]$ cat tst.rb
#!/usr/bin/ruby

require ‘sqlite3’

gives me:
[[email protected] tmp]$ ruby tst.rb
tst.rb:3:in `require’: no such file to load – sqlite3 (LoadError)
from tst.rb:3

in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/ I have the following gems installed:
flexmock-0.6.4
sources-0.0.1
sqlite3-ruby-1.2.1

what am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

marc

You forgot to require ‘rubygems’ first.

Hi,

You probably need this:

#!/usr/bin/ruby
require ‘rubygems’
require ‘sqlite3’

Best regards,
R.

Without your sage advice I would have never figured that out.
