I’ve got a few small ruby scripts that run every 15 minutes or so from
cron that do processing from a database. I was wondering if it is
dangerous to update these programs (basically an svn update) while they
are running. They don’t read any files while they are running, just
work off a db. I guess this isnt a Ruby question per say, but basically
my question is, is the entire ruby script loaded into memory when it
launches? So any change to the rb file itself wouldn’t affect the
program until it was launched again?
