I have the following error at "rake test:coverage" at rcov 0.8.1.2 - I cannot install rcov-0.9.8:
0 tests, 0 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors
c:/ruby-1.8.7-p72-i386-mswin32/lib/ruby/1.8/rexml/formatters/pretty.rb:131:in `': no implicit conversion from nil to integer (TypeError)
I've been lookin for the solution for this and I finally found one at "http://blog.andischacke.com/2009/03/problem-with-rcov-and-ruby-187.html".
I followed the step as he mentioned and it works now.
In summary, you need to change "lib/rcov/report.rb" of your rcov gem
if RUBY_VERSION == "1.8.6" && defined? REXML::Formatters::Transitive
if ["1.8.7", "1.8.6"].include?(RUBY_VERSION) && defined? REXML::Formatters::Transitive
