i’m trying to parse a binary file that simply contains Wav files one
after the other packed with an arbitrary header that points where one
file begins and the lenght of it.
The case is that i want to ignore decomposing the header and just dump
each file as i encounter the Wav headers, but Ruby stops reading data
in a nutshell, my code goes like this:
File.open(‘sound.dat’, ‘r’).each_byte do |byte|
#…stuff to process the data…
The block exits at 15864 bytes without throwing any errors. I even tried
reading the whole file to memory and it just loads those same 15864
bytes (and it’s a 190MiB file!!!)
Is this a known Ruby bug? am i doing something wrong?
thanks in advance,
