Rake sporadic: worik

Hi,

I tried to invoke rake from a Command Window, with a couple of
failures and
one success. I haven't consciously done anything to my system to
impact
rake Any idea what's going on?

First try:
K:\>rake --trace
rake aborted!
No Rakefile found (looking for: rakefile, Rakefile, rakefile.rb,
Rakefile.rb)

Second try:
K:\_Projects\Ruby\_Rails_Apps\_EIMS\RTS>rake --trace
rake aborted!
[snip: same trace]

Third try (success):
K:\_Projects\Ruby\_Rails_Apps\_EIMS\RTS2>rake --trace
(in K:/_Projects/Ruby/_Rails_Apps/_EIMS/RTS2)
** Invoke default (first_time)
** Invoke test (first_time)

You have 1 pending migrations:
  20100624214641 CreateExpenses
Run "rake db:migrate" to update your database then try again.

In the second attempt, there was a migration in the depths of the RTS
directory, but rake failed instead of reporting the migration's
existence.
I can't imagine how this problem occurred.

Thanks in Advance,
Richard

I accidentally hit the Return key prematurely. The subject should have
been something like:
Rake fails sporadically - it runs with one working directory but not a
couple of others.
I apologize for the sloppiness.

Please forget about this post. After a good nap, I see where I got
confused.
If you looked at this post, I'm sorry I wasted your time.

Best wishes,
Richard
