I've been learning Ruby for 2 weeks and of course I like it. However, 1) 'file.open(path)' returns this error in the SciTE editor: "undefined local variable or method `math' for main:Object (NameError)" 2) I try to require 'file' and fail at that too, even with an absolute path to 'file.rb' under the gems folder. Maybe I need to reinstall Ruby? Help please.

I can't offer any advice on (1), but it sure looks like a typo to me. For (2), do you need to require 'rubygems' first? I thought the OCI normally set up the RUBYOPTS environment variable to "rubygems" but perhaps I'm wrong.
