Hi,

I have my code splitted up in several directories:

....
lib/foo.rb
lib/bar.rb
setttings/globalsettngs.rb
setttings/othersettings.rb
....

If for example foo.rb want to use classes, modules or methods from 
"settings/globalesettings.rb" the ruby compiler refuses this in foo.rb:

require "../settings/globalsettings"

I always use this as a workaround:
$: << ".."
require "settings/globalsettings"

where $: is the variable storing the path where to search for files.

Is there a more elegant way to access files in "../settings"


thanks and greets

Boris
