  • 1. gem bug?
    OK, this is very strange. I'm guessing it's (somehow) gem-related. Yesterday I installed Rails on a remote server -- but then changed my mind and didn't use it there, and installed it elsewhere. So anyway: It brought over a few dependencies like ActiveRecord. I have a plain old CGI (yeah, call me a Luddite) which suddenly quit working yesterday. It *doesn't* use AR or anything, but it does use DBM and YAML. It was crashing while trying to store a yaml'd string in the dbm. (I've done some playing with YAML, and I have #load aliased to #old_load.) Oddly, it seemed to be using yaml.rb instead of the extension (syck?). On the theory that nothing happens without a reason (yeah, call me optimistic) -- I looked for files named "*yaml*" and found a yaml_wrapper.rb under /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-1.6.0/lib/active_record/wrappers/ Uninstalling AR, or even just moving that one file, fixes my crash. And yet David assures me this is "old code, not loaded anywhere." Sure enough, I don't find any requires of it with grep. But the fact remains: If that file is there, my app crashes. If it isn't, it doesn't. Chad, Jim, if you want more info, just ask... Hal
  • 2. Simple extension question
    Hi .. What is the easy way of clearing an array in an extension? ie Given VALUE t_init(VALUE self) { VALUE foo; foo = rb_ary_new(); rb_iv_set(self, "@foo", foo); } How do I do the equivalent of "foo.clear" ? Thanks, -- -mark. (probertm at acm dot org)

Does anyone know how I can write a Ruby script that can check for
available disk space on the current working directory? I'd like to be
able to run the script from Windows and Linux.

When dealing with file systems, I usually find myself switching on a

=> "/dev/sda1            110650276  52580520  52449016  51% /"

This assumes only two filesystem styles (Windows and Linux)

Woot, i didn't know about 'dir /-C'

Shame on my windows-noob head. Ruby is even nice on windows! :-)

Is this intended? It seems error prone.
