Hey! I'm trying to create a very simple IRC bot using Ruby. I don't have very much experience with sockets programming and I have a rather simple question for you. I have been able to receive information from the connection to the server and identify to it and all of that, and I have been able to implement timestamps when the program prints to stdout. The problem is that I use a receive buffer at 512 bytes and sometimes the rows get "split" like this: 20:13:13 !! :irc.du.se 372 krisss :- Maybe buy shells to IRC from at http://www.KIREnet.com. If that one 20:13:13 !! :irc. 20:13:13 !! du.se 372 krisss :- mentioned before isnt't enough, http://www.JEAH.net is around, too! How should I go about making it printing it "correctly"? --Deniz D.
