Yet another linux <-> win32 question

Hi,

Sorry for these dumb questions but I am really off when it comes to
doing anything with win32.

So, the thing is that I have a function that creates a temp file, then
does something with it and deletes it. I am doing this with

File.delete(temp_filename)

On linux this script runs without any problems, however under windows I
am getting 'Permission denied (Errno::EACCESS).

Since the file is unquestionably deletable, I think maybe windows locks
it for whatever reason (or maybe not) - am I doing something wrong, or
if not, is there a workaround for this?

Thanks,
Peter

Did you #close the file before you tried to delete it?

gem install linux ??

[email protected]:~$ sudo gem install linux
Password:
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::GemNotFoundException)
Could not find linux (> 0) in the repository

Ok, now seriously: I am doing this just to make sure that the gem I am
going to release runs on win32, too. I have a heap of blackbox tests
which I am using besides unit tests to make sure things are working
properly. All I want is to run these tests on win, then go back to my
ubuntu box.

Yep. This does not help…
Here is a similar (or maybe) identical question (I did not find the
answer to it):

Have you tried using Tempfile instead? Or would Tempfile not fit your
needs? Or is Tempfile doing the same thing?

Thanks for the tip! I will try it with a Temofile now and let’s see.

Cheers,
Peter
