Re: open4-0.6.0

From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]]

  1. I noticed you have the files layed out somewhat
    http://www.codeforpeople.com/lib/ruby/open4/

sorry for hassle…

May I suggest putting related files under the same release? Take a
look at http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=735 for what I mean.

isn’t that how i have it

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=1024

Not exactly. For example, I see this under alib:

alib
0.4.0
alib-0.4.0.gem
0.4.0
alib-0.4.0.tgz

Instead of just:

alib
0.4.0
alib-0.4.0.gem
alib-0.4.0.tgz

I didn’t even realize that GForge allowed identical release names for
the same package. Maybe this has nothing to do with the problem,
however. I’m just guessing.

Anyway, assuming this works on Windows (it does, right?)
then I might
have to start a petition to include it in the stdlib. :slight_smile:

errr - no. ;-(

however. i would love to make it so. can i ask you to
have a look at the source and see what it would take to make
work? i’m sure this will mean factoring out fork or
requiring one of you windows libs that do so - and that may be all.

It would require C I’m afraid. The win32-open3 package is one of those
that can’t properly be converted to pure Ruby. Perhaps a simple facade
is in order.

next i’ll have you help me make posixlock cross-platform :wink:

I haven’t looked at the source yet, but I suppose I would start with
Lock() and LockEx():

ah. didn’t know you could do that! in any case i’ve been doing for a
looong
time so i’m sure it’s not the problem in this case… i’ll look into it
for
my rubyforge script.

that’s ok. a facade would be fine.

right. i’d like both those and fctnl (posix) based locking wrapped into
a
single

file.lock File::LOCK_EX

interface that mimics File#flock

if you have a minute check out posixlock - it’s really short. which
win32 lib
might already have locking builtin?
