For my first “production” ruby app, I’m writing a self contained web
interface to the TSM backup product, based on some existing, awful,
perl code. I’m using webrick because the number of requests will be
small, and I want it cross platform and as self-contained as possible.
I’d prefer to generate my html using the CGI class, but webrick needs a
string to be returned and CGI#out writes to standard output.
I’ve played with redirecting $stdout to a StringIO object, but haven’t
been able to get that to work, and also that doesn’t seem to be the
Ruby way, its more Perl-ish.
Can some kind soul please point me in the right direction?
