Hi David

Thanks, the git repos work great.

I am trying to get autotest to work but keep getting this error.

loading autotest/rails_rspec
Autotest style autotest/rails_rspec doesn't seem to exist. Aborting.

Have you seen this before? Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks a lot for your help so far.

Regards
Ivor
