This works for me:


jesus@jesus-laptop:~/temp$ cat ~/.myconf.rc
$test_variable = 15
jesus@jesus-laptop:~/temp$ cat test_config.rb && ruby test_config.rb
load File.join(ENV['HOME'], ".myconf.rc")

puts $test_variable

15


So check that you don't have unmatched quotes in either of the files.
You can do as the example and use global variables, or there are some
gems out there that do similar stuff for configuration files. Maybe
you can check what they do.

I found this thread through google, it can give you some ideas:
