 I found you can write ruby programs which include code in the apps
directory from
lib/tasks directory if you fool around with the path a little bit

Here is some code I have that runs from the console in the tasks dir
and includes profile, criteria, match from app/models.

$:.unshift ";../"
$:.unshift ";c:/myproj/dateing/app/models/"

require 'rec_schema'
require 'profile'
require 'match'
require 'criteria'
