Hi David,

I created a rake file that cycles through a number of runner folders
and runs individual ruby files using the kernal 'system' method so
that I can produce HTML reports.

task :dcs do
  require 'find'
  Find.find("projects/dcs/runner") do |path|
    string_end = path.length
    string_begin = string_end -3
    result = path.slice string_begin ... string_end
    if result == ".rb"
      source_location  =  "C:\\SvnProjects\\RubyUatFramework\\test\\"
      path = path.gsub("/", "\\")
      full_path = source_location + path
      system("ruby #{full_path} -fh: C:\\rspec_reports\\#{Time.now.to_i}.htm")

However, I think I am having problems with the format switch. The HTML
will appear in the console but not on the file system.

Thanks for the help
