- Is anyone getting corrupt or empty gems from rubygems?
Yes. It’s not clear what causes it, but it’s been seen. The best work around is to have bundler cache the gems in the project.
- You can define a method in ruby called return. You can send :return to an object with return defined as a function, and it will call the method. You can’t call the method normally. None of this is a good idea.
- RVM can use most any version of rubygems you might need. just
rvm rubygems 1.5.2to get 1.5.2, for instance. Some gems are incompatible with new versions of rubygems, so this can come in handy.
