Re: RUBY on 64-bit Windows PCs

got. It simply freezes up. Has anyone heard of such problems?
I’m having
to copy my files over to garden variety 32-bit boxes to get
my ftp’ing
done.

Thanks,
Peter

There has been virtually no testing on 64 bit Windows because, well,
very few people have access to 64 bit Windows boxes.

Can you provide a sample script that demonstrates the problem? If you
step through it with the debugger can you see what line it freezes on?

Dan

Dan,
It happens on a simple script like the one below, right at the first
“end.” It freezes up and I have to essentially close down the shell, in
Windows.

FYI–64-bit Windows boxes are becoming more common. Our HP rep. sold
mine to us, telling us that is was now the standard for “workstation”
class PCs. I think Intel has been freaked out by the AMD success with
their new (64-bit) chips.

#Get any Cindex files first.
cindexfiles = Dir.glob("_-*.pdf")
cindexfiles.each do |cindexfile|
ftp = Net::FTP.open(‘mpc.bna.com’) do |ftp|
ftp.debug_mode = true
ftp.passive = true
ftp.login(‘peterb’,‘pbail’)
ftp.chdir(’/data/ps2000test’)
ftp.putbinaryfile(cindexfile)
end
end

Thanks,
-Peter

I’ve been using a 64 bit AMD and windows 2000 for months without any
trouble with ruby.

OK. Well, I guess it’s another issue then. Maybe some ports are closed,
although, I can ftp just fine using the command shell.

Thanks.
