Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use
multithreading". Nothhw tpe yawrve o oblems.[1]
Don't use threads, use processes. This is the toolkit for interprocess
communication that makes it real simple. A good place to start is the
documentation for the Cod module.
# Cod's basic elements are channels, unidirectional communication links.
pipe = Cod.pipe
# You can use those either directly:
pipe.put :some_ruby_object # Process A
pipe.get # => :some_ruby_object # Process B
# Or use them as bricks for more:
service = beanstalk.service
client = beanstalk.client(pipe) { |msg| :response } # Process A :ruby_object # => :response # Process B
Working library. Some rough edges and potential for growth. Have a look at the
Cod module to get started.
Working transports include:
* process (spawn, connecting to $stdout and $stdin)
* stdio (connects to $stdout and $stdin of current process)
* pipe (akin to IO.pipe)
* tcp (server and client)
* beanstalk (connects to beanstalkd)
At version 0.5.0
