TTCP, in Ruby

I’ve used the TTCP tcp test program from time to time, and am at present looking at some networking in Ruby. So why not have a look at porting that to ruby? So I did.

This has been built as a gem, which an executable ‘ttcp’ that will install in your gem’s bin folder. You can get the gem from here: http://rubygems.org/gems/ttcp

Or type: `gem install ttcp` at your terminal.

Source code is released under MIT license, and available on github: https://github.com/mattconnolly/ttcp

So far, I’ve tested it out on Mac and OpenIndiana in ruby 1.8.7, 1.9.3 and JRuby 1.6.5. I can’t seem to run the tests in JRuby, but it appears to work anyway.

Enjoy.
