fixture_path processing assumes a trailing slash ('/') on path

Reported by Mat Schaffer | July 19th, 2010 @ 08:14 PM

On MRI this isn't an issue, but on Rubinius, Dir.glob doesn't include extraneous slashes in the file path which causes the fixture -> table mapping to break.

Fixture path is set on and processed on

Gist example is at

The rubyspec doesn't say anything on this point, but specifying the fixture_path with the trailing slash seems like the wrong way to go.

    This is still an issue with current Rails and Rubinius HEAD versions.

    I've spoken with Evan from Rubinius and he will fix that behavior of Dir. It already behaves like MRI in almost all situations, but there still is a problem with // followed by two stars (see gist).

    To fix this for current and old Rubinius versions (and to make that code a bit cleaner) I would suggest a tiny change in ARs implementation (see gist or diff [dont know if a 2 line change needs, but I included it])


    Another confirmation of this problem in AR (bit dated):

    Have to say my first suggestion needs a trailing slash on fixture_path (which may be the reason for the original implementation), I've added an regex version which feels kinda clumsy too but should work.

    Maybe someone has a better solution, i'll give it another try tomorrow.
