IO.console

Add console capabilities to IO instances.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'io-console'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install io-console

Usage

require 'io/console'

IO.console      -> #<File:/dev/tty>
IO.console(sym, *args)

Returns a File instance opened console.

If sym is given, it will be sent to the opened console with args and the result will be returned instead of the console IO itself.

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
