I'm sure this has been asked before but I couldn't find an actual answer. This works: require 'rubygems' require 'ruby-prof' RubyProf.start This doesn't: require 'rubygems' autoload(:RubyProf, 'ruby-prof') RubyProf.start #=> LoadError: no such file to load - ruby-prof What am I doing wrong? I'd like to "weak-link" certain gems so that my users don't have to install a gem unless they encounter the part of my code that actually uses it. Thx - m.
