relative-require.rb

This module provides relative requires to the requiring file. This should solve most of the uglyness of pushing to $LOAD_PATH and loading #expand_path-ed files.

Tested with ruby-1.8.7 and ruby-1.9.2

Example project

This example shows that you don't have to mess with $LOAD_PATH anymore.

$ export RUBYOPT=-relative-require

lib/

  • myproject.rb
  • myproject/xyz.rb test/ test.rb

in myproject.rb require './myproject/xyz.rb'

in test.rb require '../lib/myproject.rb'
