improved instructions on running a single test suite on actionpack/RUNNING_UNIT_TESTS

Reported by Diego Carrion | April 18th, 2010 @ 06:05 PM

actionpack/RUNNING_UNIT_TESTS explains how to run a single test suite by executing something like:

ruby dispatch/running_test.rb

which at first glance seemed like a typo to me and I ended executing:

ruby test/dispatch/routing_test.rb

which thrown an error because abstract_unit couldn't be loaded. After looking for the cause of the error I conclude the instructed command was ok, it just was that I have to execute it from the test directory or execute something like:

ruby -Itest test/dispatch/routing_tests.rb ruby -Ctest dispatch/routing_tests.rb

I improved a little bit the documentation so other developers don't make the same error as me and they could contribute faster with Rails :)
