The Win32 Utils Team is happy to announce the release version 0.2.0 of
the win32-pipe library.
= What is it?
An interface for named pipes on MS Windows.
= What's new?
* Now pure Ruby.
* Major interface change. Pipe::Server.new and Pipe::Client.new replace the
Pipe.new_server and Pipe.new_client methods, respectively.
* An optional 3rd argument, the open mode, is now accepted which allows finer
control over how pipes are created.
* Several pipe mode and open mode constants were added.
* The asynchronous pipe server actually works now.
* Added the Pipe#name method.
* Added the Pipe#asynchronous? method.
* Added the Pipe#size method as an alias for Pipe#length.
* Added a Rakefile with tasks for testing and installation.
* Added a gemspec and uploaded a gem file to RubyForge.
* Merged the doc files into the README and/or replaced them with inlined
comments that are RDoc friendly.
= Where can I get it?
The usual places - RubyForge or the RAA. Or just "gem install win32-pipe".
Give the gem an hour or so to propogate if it doesn't work right away.
