[Ironruby-core] custom rake task

I was following Derek Bailey's article from yesterday entitled "How to
Build Custom Rake Tasks; The Right Way"
<http://www.lostechies.com/blogs/derickbailey/archive/2010/07/26/how-to-
build-custom-rake-tasks-the-right-way.aspx>  and tried to replicate some
of his code in IronRuby. Now I've run into a snag that I'm hoping
somebody can help with.

 

My .rb file looks like so:

 

require 'rake'

 

def foo(*args)

  body = proc {

    puts 'hello world'

  }

  Rake::Task.define_task(*args, body)

end

 

foo :bar

 

task :default => [:bar]

 

Pretty simple, right? Well, when I run it using rake, I get the
following error:

 

C:\Users\txg0\Desktop>rake -f test1.rb --trace

(in C:/Users/txg0/Desktop)

rake aborted!

syntax error, unexpected IDENTIFIER, expecting AMPERSAND

Anyone have any clues?
