So how do I let the programs I'm piping to think that there's no more

Not sure about the EOF, but I think you need to use IO#close_write
instead of IO#close.

Thanks, it now works!

(I need to refresh my memory with Richard Stevens' Unix book...)

:slight_smile: There's one more thing I would do: put the writing into a separate
thread. If buffers are not sufficiently large enough your version

Kind regards
