require 'hirb' at the start of every console

How do I make the script/console run the following commands
automatically at the beginning whenever it starts?

ActiveRecord::Base.logger = Logger.new(STDOUT)
require 'hirb'
Hirb::View.enable

I try putting these in .irbrc but it does not work.

Thanks.

Did you put require 'rubygems' above those lines?

Aside from require 'rubygems', you should also wrap that rails-
specific setup in an ENV['RAILS_ENV'].
I explained how to do it here: http://tagaholic.me/2009/09/07/hirb-tips-for-rails.html
