extlib bug

Reported by chase | April 9th, 2009 @ 02:30 PM

In extlib/module.rb, in nested_const_lookup, the line constants << const.const_get(part) should be changed to constants.unshift(const.const_get(part))

    • State changed from “accepted” to “hold”

    @chase: are you sure about that? Making that change breaks a couple of specs.

    I reviewed the logic and it looks like it does the right thing to me. Is there some sort of problem that necessitates this change?

    • State changed from “hold” to “not-applicable”

    Marking this ticket as not applicable due to no response from original submitter, no failing specs, and no issues discovered after review.

    Oh sorry about no response! I forgot my password and the password reset emails went into my junk folder (I should have looked there!) Anyway, I think that line # 23 or so, in the nested_const_lookup method should change from

    constants << const.const_get(part)



    My application won't work without this change, because the models can't find each other. So I assume (rightly or wrongly) that others would experience the same problem.

    @chase: can you make the change locally and run the specs to see the failures? Some of those shouldn't be there, and its important that they continue to pass.

    Ok. I have already made the change locally (otherwise the application won't work). I will run the specs and see how it goes.

    Oh I think I see what happened. On 2009-05-05 you "Fixed constant lookup for nested constructs" and changed

    const = constants.first || Object


    const = constants.last || Object

    That was another way to fix the problem I had found.

    So everything seems to be OK now.

    Ahh yeah, great. Ok. I will close this now. I assume you've tried the latest extlib and it works for you?

    Yes, thanks Dan. I just had not realized you had fixed the bug after my report on 4/9. My fix undid your fix, and vice versa, and that caused some confusion.

    I ran my specs with the new version of extlib and they passed.
