I’m trying to create a very simple IRC bot using Ruby. I don’t have very
much experience with sockets programming and I have a rather simple
question for you.
I have been able to receive information from the connection to the
server and identify to it and all of that, and I have been able to
implement timestamps when the program prints to stdout. The problem is
that I use a receive buffer at 512 bytes and sometimes the rows get
“split” like this:
20:13:13 !! :irc.du.se 372 krisss :- Maybe buy shells to IRC from at
http://www.KIREnet.com. If that one
20:13:13 !! :irc.
20:13:13 !! du.se 372 krisss :- mentioned before isnt’t enough,
http://www.JEAH.net is around, too!
How should I go about making it printing it “correctly”?
