[rspec-users] Sorry if this is a stupid question

I installed it via the Gem package manager ?

The version I have installed is cucumber-0.1.16
	<went away and changed things>
And I have just re written the features file as suggested in the link
and it works 

Weird that the addition in the examples works even though it is in the
older format??

Thanks Heaps - I can now keep what little hair I have left

Those features look out of date to me. The Scenarios / More Examples  
format has been deprecated in the latest version on Github.

Which version of cucumber are you using?

Try this instead:
