Hey Guys,

I want to look at the source code for the fixtures method (used in
loading data fixtures in the unit test framework.) I've searched through
all of the files in the ruby folder and those in the rails application
folder for the following term with no luck....

def fixtures

I'm guessing this is because the fixtures method is really a compiled
method in some binary... that makes a call out to the fixture.rb file?

Check out activerecord/lib/active_record/fixtures.rb.
Test::Unit::TestCase is reopened and fixtures is added as a class

Hope this helps,
