#4581 ✓stale
Vikrant Chaudhary

[ERB] Error page shows wrong line number, if page contains multiple line comments.

Reported by Vikrant Chaudhary | May 12th, 2010 @ 06:55 AM

Try this -

#Hello, world!

<%= %>
<%= %><%#NoMethodError, yes. %>

Now the error page shows -

NoMethodError in ####

undefined method `now' for nil:NilClass

Extracted source (around line #12):

9: B
10: C
11: D
12: <%= %>
13: E
14: F
15: G

Sometimes it leads to very hard debugging.
I'm using (Rails 2.3.5, Ubuntu 10.04 x64, ruby 1.8.7 (2010-01-10 patchlevel 249) [x86_64-linux]).

    • Tag changed from erb, views to bugmash, erb, views
    • State changed from “new” to “incomplete”

    unsure if this is a Rails bug, more like an ERB bug. Bugmash will investigate.

    This issue has been automatically marked as stale because it has not been commented on for at least three months.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
