How to print something with erb?

Hello,
I’m having a problem to output things in the write order with erb1.9
and lighttpd . I don’t know if it’s the normal comportement of erb but
this is how it works for me:

Content of my ERB file: test{<%= 1 %>2<% puts 3 %>}

On my web browser I get this output:
3
test{12}

puts or print comes before any text… Do you wich function instead of
puts would print test{123}?

Thanks wery much

*I meant right order, and normal behaviour

Do not combine puts with <%= %> output in your erb templates. puts
prints to STDOUT, which may or may not be where your erb template is
rendered. Just use <%= %>.

If I want to print something on the middle of a script I should do
“%><%= thing_to_print %><%” and that’s what I was trying to avoid. Do
you know if I can do somthing like that ?

def print string
$__erbout.write string
end

Except that I don’t know what is the erbout real identifier.

Firstly:
As noted in the documentation, you can specify the erb out variable in
the call to ERB.new:
http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/erb/rdoc/classes/ERB.html#M000301
If you don’t have control over that, you can look at the source and
see what (if any) name they are supplying and use that.

Secondly:
After I asked to have “puts” work almost 5 years ago, people on the
list
helped create a patch to ERB to allow print and puts to concatenate to
this string. See [1] below. This was followed by some discussion
(again prompted by me) for a RCR to allow this to work. See [2] below.
The discussion there is probably worth reading before we dive into
this again.

OK thank you that really helped. This is another piece to my puzzle.
Making work erb with lighttpd and without rails on both windows and
linux with a good error management and printing system is really hard,
not mentionning color syntaxing…
