rake aborted! Don't know how to build task 'taskname'
Can anyone please tell how to get rid of it.

Where are you keeping this file?

If you put it in somewhere like:

lib/tasks

It should work.

Try to add:

desc “some text”

Before each task and then you can look for it when you type:

rake -T

when i execute
D:\NetBeansProjects\RubyCode\lib\tasks>rake purchaseAlcohol
(in D:/NetBeansProjects/RubyCode)
rake aborted!

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

it is searching in project folder, it is not searching in
D:/NetBeansProjects/RubyCode/lib/tasks

can you help solving this

Try to execute “rake purchaseAlcohol” from here:

D:/NetBeansProjects/RubyCode
