In spec.opts, each line represents one command line arg, so you'd have
to do this (on two separate lines):


Then on the command line:

spec spec -O path/to/spec.opts

Look at http://rspec.rubyforge.org/documentation/tools/spec.html. If
you scroll down you'll see the output from the spec command. It
definitely mentions the --format option.
