(Crossposting note: I've also posted this question at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25487797/ruby-a...) I am writing rspec tests. Some of the classes I'm testing are located in a directory, which I would prefer by specifying a relative path. I therefore wrote something like this: # Location of the class files relative to the rspec directory PICKER_DIR='../../.....' # Load a class file require_relative PICKER_DIR+'/pickercomposer.rb' Now, the problem is that pickercomposer.rb itself uses a require 'picker.rb' # Assumed to be in the same directory as pickercomposer.rb and assumes that RUBYLIB has been set accordingly. If pickercomposer.rb would do a require_relative 'picker.rb' everything would be fine, but pickercomposer.rb was written (and is still used) occasionally with Ruby 1.8.7, which did not have a require_relative function. What is the best workaround? Do I need to setup RUBYLIB, before executing my rspec test, or is there a neat way to achive the goal from inside the rspec file?
