  if File::ALT_SEPARATOR
    @home = @home.gsub(File::ALT_SEPARATOR, File::SEPARATOR)
  end

  @home = expand(@home)

  @path = split_gem_path env["GEM_PATH"], @home

  @spec_cache_dir = env["GEM_SPEC_CACHE"] || Gem.default_spec_cache_dir

  @spec_cache_dir = @spec_cache_dir.dup.untaint
end

Private Instance Methods

Return the default Gem path

# File lib/rubygems/path_support.rb, line 75

split_gem_path(gpaths, home) click to toggle source

Split the Gem search path (as reported by Gem.path).

# File lib/rubygems/path_support.rb, line 47
def split_gem_path(gpaths, home)
  # FIX: it should be [home, *path], not [*path, home]

  gem_path = []

  if gpaths
    gem_path = gpaths.split(Gem.path_separator)
    # Handle the path_separator being set to a regexp, which will cause
    # end_with? to error
    if gpaths =~ /#{Gem.path_separator}\z/
      gem_path += default_path
    end

    if File::ALT_SEPARATOR
      gem_path.map! do |this_path|
        this_path.gsub File::ALT_SEPARATOR, File::SEPARATOR
      end
    end

    gem_path << home
  else
    gem_path = default_path
  end

  gem_path.map { |path| expand(path) }.uniq
end
