when i try to start webrick i get this message

./easyhtmlserver:12: syntax error, unexpected tASSOC, expecting kEND
:Port => 80
^
./easyhtmlserver:14: syntax error, unexpected tASSOC, expecting kEND
:Port => 801

./easyhtmlserver:17: syntax error, unexpected ‘)’, expecting kEND

this is my code

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

#require the libaries
require ‘webrick’
include WEBrick

#make the class
class EasyHTMLServer
def initalize
s = HTTPServer.new(
if $port = 80
:Port => 80
else
:Port => 801
end
:DocumentRoot => “/home/” + $home + “/easyhtml/” + $pro
)
end
end

#declare the varibles
$home = ARGV[0]
$pro = ARGV[1]
$port = ARGV[2]

#load the server
EasyHTMLServer.new

This should work:

 :DocumentRoot => "/home/" + $home + "/easyhtml/" + $pro
 )

end
end

But that code is pretty nasty to look at.

This should work:

Sorry, ignore me. I just re-read the post and noticed the problems with
with
hash arguments too. Not sure how you solve this.

Yikes!

Are people really so adverse to creating simple methods that describe
intent? (They also make testing easier :slight_smile: )

Pick a name that makes sense if this is not a good one …

def default_port default=801
$port == 80 ? 80 : default
end

s = HTTPServer.new :Port => default_port, :DocumentRoot => ‘etc…’
