Caller/backtrace parser with some useful utilities for manipulating the load path, and doing other relative things.
The primary thing you can do is parse a caller line(s).
=> [#<struct Callsite::Line filename="/opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/workspace.rb", line=52, method="irb_binding">, #<struct Callsite::Line filename="", line=0, method=nil>]
This is also suitable for parsing a backtrace, to get detailed information about it.
begin raise rescue pp .($!) end
=> [#<struct Callsite::Line filename="(irb)", line=27, method="irb_binding">, #<struct Callsite::Line filename="/opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8/irb/workspace.rb", line=52, method="irb_binding">, #<struct Callsite::Line filename="", line=0, method=nil>]
There are also six methods which patch existing objects to give you powerful usage of the caller.
This gives you the ~@ method on
String, which takes any
string, and gives you a relative version of it, treating it as a file path.
Gives you (on my laptop)
This adds the
File.relative method. File.relative(file_path)
has the same effect as ~file_path.
autoload_relative onto Module. This allows you to do
module MyModule autoload_relative :Whatever, "lib/whatever" end
In this case, lib/whatever will be treated as a relative path from the definition of the module.
This adds the
_\DIR_REL_ and optionally
_\DIR_ and require_relative methods to Kernel.
_\DIR_REL_ will give
you your current directory, much like
you the current
_\FILE_ you're in.
require_relative is like
require .. only,
This adds a couple of weird methods to Kernel, require_next and require_all. There search your current $LOAD_PATH, and require the next file (ingoring the current one you're in on the load_path) or require all files of a given name.
This adds some super useful methods to $LOAD_PATH. There are find_file (finds a single file on your load path), find_all_files (finds all of em), add_current (adds to the end of the load path your current dir) and add_current! (adds it to the beginning).
As well, this gives you add and add!, both of which guard against a path being added twice to the load path. Add appends to the end if it doesn't exist, and add! forces it to the beginning.
Once you have this installed, you can use require 'dirge' and require 'load_path_find' to get exactly the functionality you had before.
