Hello,
I'm overriding the initialize method of a base class and I'm trying to set a Base class variable in the overridden method and have it register in the Base class (hope that makes sense).

Here's my code:

Code:
in Rails::Generator::Base:


class Base
  include Options
  class_inheritable_accessor :spec

  def initialize(runtime_args, runtime_options = {})
    @args = runtime_args
    parse!(@args, runtime_options)
  
    # Derive source and destination paths.
    @source_root = options[:source] || File.join(spec.path, 'templates')
  end
end

class MediaModuleGenerator < Rails::Generator::Base 
  def initialize(runtime_args, runtime_options = {})
     self.spec.path = File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/generators/media_module'    
     super
  end
end
I should mention that spec is a module w/in the Rails framework IE: Rails::Generator::Spec

When I run my generator, I get this error:

You have a nil object when you didn't expect it! (NoMethodError) The error occurred while evaluating nil.path

So when I set the self.spec.path var to File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/generators/media_module', it's not registering in the base class.

Any ideas?
