Feature #7711

RubyGems uses autoload

Added by Thomas Sawyer almost 3 years ago. Updated over 2 years ago.

Assignee:Eric Hodel


Using a custom require method, I ran into an issue with RubyGems b/c it is using autoload:


Seeing that autoload is now discouraged from standard libs (http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-core/41149), when might we see it removed?

  • Status changed from Open to Assigned
  • Assignee set to Eric Hodel
  • Priority changed from Normal to 3
  • Target version changed from next minor to Next Major

I don't have any plans to remove autoload at this time.

  • Status changed from Assigned to Rejected

Due to notes in #5653 it seems that autoload is fixed. In the interest of pushing towards a definitive answer from matz about autoload's future I am rejecting this issue.

Please restore it to assigned if matz decides autoload will be removed.
