Instructions for downloading and installing win32-open3 modu


#1

Hi All,

In recent past I have used Win32-service module; I came to RubyTalk on
instruction for how to install service module. Park H. gave me
service.so file and told me to put this fine in win32 directory present
in
ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8\i386-msvcrt\win32 directory.

Now I want to use win32-open3 module, from website
http://rubyforge.org/projects/win32utils/ I got open3-0[1].2.2.so file;
but
now on copying it to win32 directory mentioned aboove, I am not able to
use
win32-open3 module.

Help is appreciated.

Regards,
Jatinder

Hi,

I was able to get around with the installation by renaming the so file
to
open3.so and putting it in the mentioned folder, but now on executing
the
ruby program I get following error,

check.rb:3: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32]

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual
way.
Please contact the application’s support team for more information.
Following are the contents of ruby program,

require “win32/open3”

input, out, err, @pid = Open4.popen4(‘dir’)

Help Appreciated!

Thanks

Same as win32-serivce.so, you can download “open3.so” at
http://home.nownuri.net/~phasis/open3.so
and copy to ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8\i386-msvcrt\win32 directory

Soon or later, the segfaulting binary files will be replaced with
correct
version.

Regards,

Park H.
