A way to "require 'warnings'"


(Jason Creighton) #1

It would be nice if there was a “warnings.rb” file in the standard
distribution that contained:

$VERBOSE = true

…so you could say

require ‘warnings’

in a script, which, IMHO, reads a little better than “$VERBOSE = true”

What do you think?

Makes sense. Or it could be ‘ant.rb’ instead of ‘warnings.rb’ so that
you could say

$ ruby -rant -e ‘p Math.cos 0’
-e:1: warning: parenthesize argument(s) for future version
1.0

Oh! Neat idea! We could also have ‘ave.rb’ as an alias. :slight_smile:

eproach.rb, eprimand.rb, ebuke.rb, eprove.rb, eject.rb, idicule.rb,
oast.rb, efuse.rb, epudiate.rb, eprobate.rb … the horror, the horror!
