This module contains various utility methods as module methods.

Public Class Methods

glob_files_in_dir(glob, base_path) click to toggle source

Globs for files matching pattern inside of directory, returning absolute paths to the matching files.

# File lib/rubygems/util.rb, line 123
def self.glob_files_in_dir(glob, base_path)
  if RUBY_VERSION >= "2.5"
    Dir.glob(glob, base: base_path).map! {|f| File.join(base_path, f) }
  else
    Dir.glob(File.expand_path(glob, base_path))
  end
end
gunzip(data) click to toggle source

Zlib::GzipReader wrapper that unzips data.

# File lib/rubygems/util.rb, line 12
def self.gunzip(data)
  require 'zlib'
  require 'stringio'
  data = StringIO.new(data, 'r')

  unzipped = Zlib::GzipReader.new(data).read
  unzipped.force_encoding Encoding::BINARY
  unzipped
end
gzip(data) click to toggle source

Zlib::GzipWriter wrapper that zips data.

# File lib/rubygems/util.rb, line 25
def self.gzip(data)
  require 'zlib'
  require 'stringio'
  zipped = StringIO.new(String.new, 'w')
  zipped.set_encoding Encoding::BINARY

  Zlib::GzipWriter.wrap zipped do |io| io.write data end

  zipped.string
end
inflate(data) click to toggle source

A Zlib::Inflate#inflate wrapper

# File lib/rubygems/util.rb, line 39
def self.inflate(data)
  require 'zlib'
  Zlib::Inflate.inflate data
end
popen(*command) click to toggle source

This calls IO.popen where it accepts an array for a command (Ruby 1.9+) and implements an IO.popen-like behavior where it does not accept an array for a command.

# File lib/rubygems/util.rb, line 49
def self.popen(*command)
  IO.popen command, &:read
rescue TypeError # ruby 1.8 only supports string command
  r, w = IO.pipe

  pid = fork do
    STDIN.close
    STDOUT.reopen w

    exec(*command)
  end

  w.close

  begin
    return r.read
  ensure
    Process.wait pid
  end
end
silent_system(*command) click to toggle source

Invokes system, but silences all output.

# File lib/rubygems/util.rb, line 73
def self.silent_system(*command)
  opt = {:out => IO::NULL, :err => [:child, :out]}
  if Hash === command.last
    opt.update(command.last)
    cmds = command[0...-1]
  else
    cmds = command.dup
  end
  return system(*(cmds << opt))
rescue TypeError
  @silent_mutex ||= Mutex.new

  @silent_mutex.synchronize do
    begin
      stdout = STDOUT.dup
      stderr = STDERR.dup

      STDOUT.reopen IO::NULL, 'w'
      STDERR.reopen IO::NULL, 'w'

      return system(*command)
    ensure
      STDOUT.reopen stdout
      STDERR.reopen stderr
      stdout.close
      stderr.close
    end
  end
end
traverse_parents(directory, &block) click to toggle source

Enumerates the parents of directory.

# File lib/rubygems/util.rb, line 106
  def self.traverse_parents(directory, &block)
    return enum_for __method__, directory unless block_given?

    here = File.expand_path directory
    loop do
      Dir.chdir here, &block rescue Errno::EACCES

      new_here = File.expand_path('..', here)
      return if new_here == here # toplevel
      here = new_here
    end
  end

  ##
  # Globs for files matching +pattern+ inside of +directory+,
  # returning absolute paths to the matching files.

  def self.glob_files_in_dir(glob, base_path)
    if RUBY_VERSION >= "2.5"
      Dir.glob(glob, base: base_path).map! {|f| File.join(base_path, f) }
    else
      Dir.glob(File.expand_path(glob, base_path))
    end
  end
