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).
Thank you very much.
