Zsh and ruby functions

hi roobyfiends -

i am trying to get zshell to use some ruby scripts transparently but
running into problems.

in the ruby script i have:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

and yet:
[[email protected]:~]$ type svnbatchmove.rb (12-24
09:43)
svnbatchmove.rb is a shell function

then running of course gives parse errors:

[[email protected]:~]$ svnbatchmove.rb (12-24
09:42)
svnbatchmove.rb:20: parse error near `puts’

how do i coerce zsh into recognizing this as ruby?

if i run the script directly (ie full path) it’s fine…

i have this in my zshrc to prep the ruby scripts as zsh functions -
is there another way to do this? i tried adding this dir to my path,
but unable to find the new funcs.

autoload ~/rpm/bin/rubyfuncs/*(:t)

but this gives:

[[email protected]:~]$ which svnbatchmove.rb (12-24
10:02)
svnbatchmove.rb () {

undefined

builtin autoload -X
}

is it only possible to extend zsh with other shell algebra gook?

i found a workaround by defining a shell function to call the ruby
one…

svnba() {
~dc/rpm/bin/shellfuncs/svnbatchmove.rb $*
}

but this is obviously duplicitious and duplicative …

guess this maybe more of a zsh list thing but … tips appreciated!

Well, I’ve never used zsh, but you can just call “ruby
svnbatchmove.rb”–this will always work. If that’s too clunky, you could
create a valid zsh script called “svnbatchmove” that acts as a wrapper
and calls “ruby svnbatchmove.rb”.

This is what the “command” builtin is useful for.

These are shots in the dark, as I haven’t used zsh, but just maybe one
of
them will be helpful:

  1. Is the #! line the first line of the file?
  2. Just for kicks, check if it works in another shell?
  3. Hard-code the path to ruby rather than using /usr/bin/env to find it
