Hey all, I'm distributing requests to a small farm of Ferret servers across the network using DRb. In a specific part of my program, I'm trying to find an entry across servers, and for that, I'm using index['example_doc_id'].load as the return value of the function in question. This returns a Ferret::Index::LazyDoc, which is all fine and dandy, except that for some reason DRb doesn't like it and won't return the "hash" to the remote client. I tried using index['example_doc_id'].load.to_a, and the array gets returned just fine. For the record, yes, I've tried index['example_doc_id'].load.to_hash, but what you get from that is again a Ferret::Index::LazyDoc, and not a Hash. I suppose I could manually copy the elements from LazyDoc to a new Hash, but that's hacky. Before I resort to it, does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
