Help with socket method in rails controller

I’m trying to write a method in a controller to write to a socket, I’m
kinda stumped right now.
Here’s my code:
def socketwriter
require “socket”
s=TCPSocket.new(“ip”,“port”)
s.write (“arguments|I|want|to|send|”)
end

so if I just write this as a ruby script and code in the ip, port,
arguments, etc. it works great. I’m trying to figure out how to post to

this method in rails. I have a database that contains all the
information I need for the socket parameters and the commands to send,
I just need a little help on how to post them to the controller.

Thanks for any help.

Post parameters in Rails are stored in the params hash (accessible from
the controller). Create an action, get your data from the params hash
then use the socket in the normal way.
