Ruby Bug? Windows and UDPSocket and Errno:ENOTCONN


J

John Carter

If I have a pair of Win2k Ruby processes bouncing UDP packets back and
forth...

After awhile one of them dies with Errno::ENOTCONN

The code works under Linux but not under Win2k, neither on ruby-1.8.6
nor 1.8.7.

Any guesses? Suggestions? Workarounds?

I thought, hmm, I'm pretty sure thats what I tried first....

Anyhoo, I'll try your suggestion and...

...it worked!
Hope this helps,

So I went back to the original code and saw we had...
UDPSocket.open.send

Ping! Light goes on! Everytime we do UDPSocket.open we open an fd and
don't close it.

The mystik Errno::ENOTCONN arises because the open failed (silently)
because we had run out of file handles!

Thanks!
