I just wanted to share a quick little tidbit on how to install older brew versions.
I was having some issues with an older version of Elixir failing tests (1.0.1), and the latest version (1.1.1) is working fine.
brew install elixir gets latest.
To get 1.0.1 installed, I first went to the homebrew github repo, looked at the
Library/Formula folder, found the
elixir.rb formula to install elixir, looked in the history, found 1.0.1, and then executed the following line:
That did it, I easily got 1.0.1 installed, and going back to 1.1.1 was super easy.
Hope this helps, enjoy! Cheers!
