TCPServer locking when calling accept


#1

How do I stop the TCPServer ‘locking up’ when I call accept?
I’m trying to build a passive ftp server.

Start a new thread for each incoming connection.

There’s example code (a dummy POP3 server) at
http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?SingletonTutorial

… except RubyGarden seems to be down again, so try entering this URL
in
the waybackmachine at www.archive.org

When you say ‘locking up’ do you mean it won’t return from the method
call until a client has connected? If so, this is typically referred to
as ‘blocking’. There is a method on TCPServer called ‘accept_nonblock’
that may give you the behavior you are looking for.
