$stdout changing?


#1

Is it possible for me to have output that go to the $stdout go through a
method instead? ie:

Have stuff go through this:

def write_to(str)
@socket.send(str, 0)
end

?

You can assign any object that responds to #write to $stdout.

In this case IO#reopen seems more appropriate IMHO (if it works with
Sockets, which I did not verify). It’s faster (no Ruby code needed)
and will also work for sub processes.

Kind regards
