If string = "mike" then print "Hi mike"

server/client connection
so, im only a few days into ruby, im working on some tcp and there is a
problem with my client.rb… if str == ??? this if statement is always
skipped and im not sure why?

also, from the server with the gets command i want to send the client a
string like "mike skateboard boxing" then when the client recives this
string how can i brake this into 3 arrays or strings?

#server.rb
require "socket"
dts = TCPServer.new('localhost', 1234)
loop do
  Thread.start(dts.accept) do |s|
    print(s, " is accepted\n")
    #gets, what command to send to the client?
  str = gets
    s.write(str)
    print(s, " is gone\n")
    s.close
  end
end
------------end of server-------------

#client.rb
require 'socket'
while true
streamSock = TCPSocket.new( "127.0.0.1", 1234 )
  str = streamSock.recv( 100 )
    print str

  if str == 'mike'
    print 'Hi mike'
  elsif str == 'user'
      print 'hi user'
  end
  end

--------end of client

#gets method returns a string with a newline if you ended the
input with enter. You can chomp it or use double Ctrl-D
instead of enter.

I've gotten into the habit of using gets.chomp when reading input of
any kind. It's so easy to forget that newlines are still on there.

Oh, wow... a bit confused at first but then i googled ruby chomp and
then it made sence, when you press enter \n

if string.chomp == "mike"
   print "hello mike\n"
   system("calc.exe")

# how can i execute calc.exe and continue with the script well calc is
still running???

Try
system("start calc.exe")
