Old verisons of ruby-progressbar occur SystemStackError in some cases


Hey Sergey,

Could you explain how I can reproduce this so I can work on a regression test for it?

Thanks for helping out!

Hi Jeff,

It's very difficult to reproduce error because it depends on terminal width. In some cases calculation of bar width may fall into infinite loop. I fixed this error and author of ruby-progressbar commited my pull request.

I had a headache when I tried to understand why my empty tests fail.

As I have noticed just now, jfelchner didn't push updated code to, so this pull request makes no sence. He develops new version of ruby-progressbar, it may be good to use it.



I just released 1.1.0.rc1, which uses ruby-progressbar 1.0.0.rc1. Could you try that and let me know if that solves your problem? :)


Yep it does, thank you!
Just a note: version from still uses old ruby-progressbar v0.0.10
