require

is more abstract than load. Strictly speaking, you don’t require a file; you require a feature. And typically, you do so without even specifying the extension on the filename. To see how this works, change this line in test.rb

 load "test.rb"

to this:

 require "./test"

When you run test.rb, you get the same result as before, even though you haven’t supplied the full name of the file you want loaded.
