Hello, I wanted to run a command line program from Ruby. I used `(backticks) to do this. It was successful if I run the program using Webrick but if I run it using Apache 2.2.8, a "Bad File Descriptor" error is returned. I needed to run `svn list` command to get the names of the files in a target repository located in another machine. Using `(backticks) to run the command gives me the output that i need. Can anybody help tell me why `(backticks) return this kind of error in Apache? Or is there a better way to run a command line in ruby that returns the same as the output of `(backticks). Please help. Thank you very much.
