Win32 file stat and find conflict

I have a small snippet of code to recurse a directory which works as it
should

require ‘find’

Find::find(‘C:\test’) do |f|
p f
end

When I change it like this

require ‘win32/file/stat’
require ‘find’

Find::find(‘C:\test’) do |f|
p f
end

Only the ‘C:\test’ directory is printed. None of the files or
subdirectories show up.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

thanks,

Luis

Don’t require ‘win32/file/stat’ directly. Require win32-file instead,
which will, in turn, require win32-file-stat.

The reason is that the ‘find’ module is calling File.lstat internally,
which is just a pass through method to File::Stat. For it to work
properly you need to use the File.lstat method that I’ve defined in the
win32-file package.

I’ve updated the README file for win32-file-stat to explain the
situation in a little more detail (and added a warning that you should
never require win32-file-stat directly).

cannot help you, but, i can also second that behavior here.
wish there was something like “unrequire” the "require"d

maybe something like,

require ‘win32/file/stat’
begin
test_require ‘win32/file/stat’
rescue
require ‘win32/file/stat’ :uninstall => true
end
