Ah, the joys of dynamic languages. After further looking at the code, I
see that the module 'require' is intentionally inside an if, so that it
will only get loaded as needed. If I explicitly require file containing
the module in the spec.rb file, then it works. I suppose the require in
the code I'm testing will only have an effect when it's not present in
the calling code. Still puzzled why I could call the module before
without getting a syntax error.
Thanks so much for your help.
