[ANN] open4-0.6.0

<snip>

I tried to download the .tgz file from the RubyForge page, but I get a
404. I noticed you have the files layed out somewhat strangely, with 1
file per release it looks like. Maybe that's confusing RubyForge.

May I suggest putting related files under the same release? Take a look
at http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=735 for what I mean.

Anyway, assuming this works on Windows (it does, right?) then I might
have to start a petition to include it in the stdlib. :slight_smile:

Regards,

Dan

hmm. the same script uploaded the gem, which is fine, as the tgz so i'm not
sure what's going on... it looks like it may be a rubyforge issue - i can't
even delete the release with it throwing errors (missing parameters??)

for now you can grab the tarball/gem here

sorry for hassle...

isn't that how i have it

聽聽聽http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=1024

note that they're all undert the 'codeforpeople' project. that way i don't
have to bother time whenever i create a new sub-project...

Anyway, assuming this works on Windows (it does, right?) then I might have
to start a petition to include it in the stdlib. :slight_smile:

errr - no. ;-(

however. i would __love__ to make it so. can i ask you to have a look at the
source and see what it would take to make work? i'm sure this will mean
factoring out fork or requiring one of you windows libs that do so - and that
may be all.

next i'll have you help me make posixlock cross-platform :wink:

cheers.
