Description agyar 2010-07-02 19:40:26 UTC
From the 6.9 IDE, running an RSpec file, I get an error on line 11 in the aws-s3 gem: 

/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/aws-s3-0.6.2/lib/aws/s3.rb:11:in `require': /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/aws-s3-0.6.2/lib/aws/s3/extensions.rb:84: invalid multibyte escape: /[\x80-\xFF]/ (SyntaxError)

It's similar to an error msg that can occur in Ruby 1.9, but the same file runs perfectly from the command line and from the Ruby 1.8 IDE, so I'm imagining it's a Netbeans-specific issue rather than a gem issue.

I'm running Ruby 1.9.1p376.
