I am attempting to pass data back from a shoes app that was spawned by a ruby app. Doing simple stuff like present a list of file names in the shoes app for the user to select what is to be deleted. Then want to pass this information back to the spawning ruby app. Only easy way I can see setup communications between the two is to read and write files.
Have tried a admin environment variable and popen neither work in this situation.
If I had a debug version of shoes might consider doing everything in shoes!
Ruby version is 2.5.5p157 Shoes 3.2.25r2170 running Windows 10 20H2
Does anyone have any suggestions other than using files.
Also seem to be able to do anything I want with this version of shoes, any reason to change to a newer version (if one is available - no longer remember why I chose this version).
