Ruby中socket编程时出现recv for buffered IO (IOError) 错误的解决方法

Socket作异步编程时,检验对端是否已经关闭不能用Socket#eof?,因为这样会造成Ruby将此SocketIO对象转换成Buffered IO,从而导致recvrecvfrom系列函数读取失败,出现“recv for buffered IO (IOError)”错误。在Buffered IO上只能调用可能会阻塞的readreadlinegets系列函数,严重影响了异步通信服务器的性能。


我也被这个问题困扰了好几天,直到在ruby新闻组中看到一篇很好的解决方案,用异常代替eof?检查,我已经在ruby1.8.2 windows one-click版本上测试通过,特此引用。原帖可在上找到。

I'm not sure about all of the issues, but I think it may have to do with
you attempting to test socket.eof? prior to reading from socket.  I
don't think it can know about it's eof status until it does the read.

I'm just a Ruby beginner, but I know socket programming pretty well.
Try replacing the inside of the socketsReady[0].each loop as follows:

     if socket == server
       client = socket.accept
       puts "established connection" +
         string = socket.recv(1024)
         puts "received /"#{string}/""+
         socket.write("  server received your /"#{string}/"")
         address = socket.addr
         puts "closed connection (#{address[-1]}:#{address[1]})"

Seems to work.  Now you need to figure out how to abort from the loop,
such as when the user enters a key (on the server process).  I can't
figure it out...
