[Windows] only runs one spec file from spec folder #138

  • create a spec file with a test in it and put it inside a directory named 'spec'
  • copy that spec file into the same 'spec' directory but change the name
  • run: jasmine-node spec

It only sees one test. From what I've seen, it looks like it only runs the tests from one of the files in the spec directory instead of all specs.

The reason for this is that findit (which is used by jasmine-node to recurse over directory trees) will only ever process one file on windows because node reports that every file has an inode of 0. One possible fix is to use a different library that doesn't do that check when given files with an inode of 0. I've submitted a pull request #141 which uses walkdir which doesn't have this problem.

@kybernetikos At the moment I've just been patching the version of findit that gets installed with Jasmine. It would be nice to switch off of findit to have this resolved (and since findit seems to be unmaintained).

Confirmed using walker has fixed this on Windows 7.
