How to include files in ruby webs?

What is the equivalent of
include("library.php");
in ruby?

I googled this and "rendering shared partials in ruby" but can't find
anything.

Check out the docs for require and load.

Well, I don't know php but 'require' is the equivalent of #include in C/C++ except that it automatically adds the guards against multiple inclusion. You can also leave off the .rb

Just use it like;
require libfile

You can use require or load.

require 'filename'
loads filename.rb only once during the current executiion. This is what you would normally require. I dont know php all that well, but I think this is what you mean.
