Highline

Was using highline for a program I am making for learning/fun. I got it
working perfectly but I have made it hit a limit which I don’t know how
to get past. I want it to be able to use get_charter outside the
console.

Is this possible with highline or is there another library I can use
that will have this ability?

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘highline/import’
require “highline/system_extensions”
require ‘win32/sound’
include Win32
include HighLine::SystemExtensions

char = 0;
while char.chr != “z”
char = get_character
if char.chr == “a”
Sound.play(‘C:\Users\rubiest\Desktop\Sounds\ask_mr_hat.wav’)
elsif char.chr == “s”
Sound.play(‘C:\Users\rubiest\Desktop\Sounds\drugs_x.wav’)
elsif char.chr == “d”
Sound.play(‘C:\Users\rubiest\Desktop\Sounds\screw-u_x.wav’)
elsif char.chr == “f”
Sound.play(‘C:\Users\rubiest\Desktop\Sounds\respect_x.wav’)
else
print “Now exiting”
end
end

HighLine is really focused towards console interactions, so it probably
won’t be of much help outside of that environment.

If you are wanting to read characters off of some IO-like interface for
Ruby getc() may help. If you mean that you wish to capture keystrokes
in a GUI environment, you’ll need to look at a windowing toolkit.

I hope that helps.
