[rspec-users] cucumber rake file question

Real beginner question here. I don't really know rake, so I'm stumbling.

As I set a dir to hold my feature files, etc., I'm simply copying the 
files structure I see in 
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/cucumber-0.1.13/examples/i18n/en/

I know we need a Rake file ME little dir tree, but I don't think I can 
just copy the one in the examples tree - or rather, I think I have to 
alter the first line:

$:.unshift(File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../../../lib')

I don't know if this is bash or some ruby thing I haven't figured out, 
but mostly I don't know what to do with the '/../../../lib') part. It 
looks like its trying to locate the source dir, but if so, why not just 
specify + 'lib'...? After staring at it a bit, I have to admit I don't 
grasp what's going on.

Can someone clue me in?

Tom
