stousetblink: lobster
teferimore or less
slyphonfor some reason with jfs partitions, they get wedged in "uninterruptible sleep" state
i.e. un-kill-9able
apeirosjakehow, still, paths don't have to be absolute.
jakehowdoes a require statement look in each value in the LOAD_PATH array?
apeirosthey have to be relative to $: for normal requires and work somewhat similarly for gems
yes, but gems hijacks require
I don't know if it searches for a gem first and then $: or otherway round. I think gem first.
rofl: "Theory and practice are two completely different things." - "Not in theory."
stousetapeiros: I like the fact that things that work in practice is not a proper subset of things that work in theory.
apeirosstouset, those occurances just show flaws in the theory ;-)
or "indicate"
slyphonwhat's the deal with "bsd disklabel"s
teferislyphon: oh man, you're in for a treat
ready for this?
slyphoni withdraw the quesiton!
it's not slices, right?
teferitoo late, you get it anyway
slyphonhaha
teferiso, what everyone else calls partitions, bsd calls slices
nullietheory is approximation
teferiand then you put a disklabel on a slice and divide THAT up into what it calls partitions
slyphonright, but, uhm, bah, nvm
apeirosnullie, and practice is poking with a stick in the dark :)
teferiso, for example, ad0s1a is ata disk 0, slice (aka what everyone else calls partition) 1, partition 'a' (first 'partition')
nullieyeah, theory tells you where to poke
apeiros(hoping to push the buttons that theory claims are there, well, maybe slightly somewhere else)
haha
yes :)
jakehowapeiros: does File.readlines require an absolute path?
apeirosjakehow, no.
ri IO::readlines
sometimes stuff like that is in there. but only sometimes.
jakehowapeiros: hmm... b/c it works only if i make the path absolute
apeirosjakehow, that just means your relative path is wrong
relative to $0, not __FILE__
don't forget that.
LoganCapaldorelative to Dir.pwd, not $0 or __FILE__
