#6430 ✓invalid

Rails.root string conversion gives an ASCII string on Ruby 1.9.2

Reported by Yvan BARTHÉLEMY | February 14th, 2011 @ 05:24 PM

Here is a failing test file on Rails 3.0.3

#encoding: UTF-8
require 'test_helper'

class RootTest < ActionDispatch::IntegrationTest
  fixtures :all

  # Replace this with your real tests.
  test "Rails.root encoding is UTF-8" do
    assert_equal "UTF-8", "#{Rails.root}"

  test "Dummy encoding is UTF-8" do
    assert_equal "UTF-8", "#{"toto"}"

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”
    • Importance changed from “” to “Low”

    This is not a Rails thing.
    Try the following

    ➜  cat santiago.rb 
    module Santiago
      def name
    ➜  /tmp  cat app.rb
    #encoding: UTF-8
    require 'santiago'
    puts "#{}"
    ➜  /tmp  ruby -I. test2.rb

    Ruby encodes the string to match the magic comment when you define literal strings
