Edge Rails: parse error, unexpected $, expecting kEND

Hey Stephen, if you're using AWDwRv2, I would recommend using rails 1.2 RC 2 to work your way through the book because it's covering the features of rails 1.2. Also, you should be aware that Edge is a development branch. Thus, things may or may not work.

Good luck,

I did this, but rails -v still produces a version of 1.1.6.

Where else can I get Rails 1.2 RC 2 ?

That's ok, rails -v will continue to say 1.1.6 until the official 1.2 release is out.

If you want to make sure you've got the right version of rails, do this:

ruby script/about

If you see an "edge version" mentioned somewhere in the list of stats (a number greater than 5000 or so) then you're all set.
