Bug #4337

rubygems calls chdir directly, actions should be enclosed in a block

Added by Pierre-Yves Ritschard over 4 years ago. Updated over 4 years ago.

Assignee:Eric Hodel
ruby -v:ruby 1.9.2p136 Backport:


When installing gems, windows_stub_script is called in installer.rb which
directly calls Dir.chdir.

If this were to be called inside another Dir.chdir call with a block passed to
it, it would spew warnings.

Instead the proposed patch encloses the actions in a block, removing the need
for saving and restoring a path around the chdir call.

  • Status changed from Open to Closed
  • Assignee set to Eric Hodel
  • Target version set to 1.9.3

Unfortunately your supplied patch did not pass the tests.

I committed a different version which allowed the tests to pass to rubygems trunk. It will be imported when RubyGems 1.5 is released at the end of January.

This should be fixed in trunk now as well, please verify.
