[MacRuby-devel] Using Bacon with MacRuby

Hi all,

I'm trying to use Bacon with MacRuby, and am running into an odd error:

A new array
- should be empty
- should have zero size
- should raise on trying fetch any index
- should have an object identity
- should be a palindrome
- should have super powers [FAILED]

core:in `write:': not opened for writing (IOError)

Running it with "bacon" on the command-line avoids the problem, and 'fails' correctly. :-)

Here's my config -- any suggestions?  Is this a real bug, or user error?

> $ macruby --version
> MacRuby version 0.5 (ruby 1.9.0) [universal-darwin10.0, x86_64]
> $ sudo macgem install bacon
> $ macgem list
> *** LOCAL GEMS ***
> bacon (1.1.0)

I am using the whirlwind tutorial for Bacon 1.1:


> #!/usr/local/bin/macruby
> require 'rubygems'
> require 'bacon'
