Well, with rbot 0.9.4 there was an error about SIGHUP not being a
recognized command (commenting the trap line solved it), but it
wouldn’t connect.

Then it looked for /etc/hosts (this is probably a problem with the
HTTP packages?)

And even when creating this file it failed by saying that the
required address was not valid for its context.

I’ve not tried 0.9.6 now because I need to put upt the bdb Ruby
module.

Well SIGHUP isn’t a commmand par se… it’s a unix termination signal
that u can send to the program to tell it to terminate.

Then it looked for /etc/hosts (this is probably a problem with the
HTTP packages?)
again this is unix specific… in windows it’s in c:\windows\lmhosts
iirc. /etc/hosts hold the ip <-> name solution lijnes for machines that
are on your local network usually as I have indicated below.

192.168.0.1 firewall.summerfield-technology.co.uk fw
192.168.0.2 dev.summerfield-technology.co.uk dev
etc
etc

And even when creating this file it failed by saying that the
required address was not valid for its context.

What i’m going to do is if i get time tonight i’m going to d/l ruby for
windows and rbot (again :slight_smile: ) and i’ll have a go… I’ll keep you all
posted as to how i get on.

Yes, sorry.

Can I just copy the windows one to where linux expects it?

And even when creating this file it failed by saying that the

No but if ythe program isn’t written to handle the SIGHUP signal, then
the default handler will terminate the process. but i agree normally
it’s used to get the program to reload it’s config or whatever.

I would presume so the two files are exactly the same iirc

or you could just modify the code to look in \windows if it’s running
under win etc but i don’t know what else u would need to change

And even when creating this file it failed by saying that the

np, i haven’t had time to do it yet :wink: but it’s on my list of things to
do. I’m trying to rewrite a yahoo chat client atm… and yes it’s in
ruby :slight_smile:

Still aborts saying that the requested address was not valid for the
context.

I upgraded to 0.9.6 but still the same error. I don’t even understand
who is giving the error …

Sounds like the socket libraries. Wanna paste the entire text of the
error?

I know the title might sound a bit OT, but the point is I’m going to do it
in Ruby… so…

I’m wondering how I would - start a SWF file from Ruby but not let the SWF
file have a normal window border… no title bar, no menu options - not
even a close button in the upper right corner…

When you double-click on a SWF it opens up in MM’s SWF Player - with a
normal windows border.

I don’t want the border… am I being too picky - or can Ruby really handle
this?

I would love any help or suggestions you guys can give me about this…

Ok. /etc/host MUST contain the reverse DNS for the server. If it
contains

213.203.143.52 irc.azzurra.net

rbot manages to connect.
