outs[R]

Public Class Methods

new(in_stream, out_stream, err_stream=STDERR, usetty=true) click to toggle source

Creates a new StreamUI wrapping in_stream for user input, out_stream for standard output, err_stream for error output. If usetty is true then special operations (like asking for passwords) will use the TTY commands to disable character echo.

# File lib/rubygems/user_interaction.rb, line 196
def initialize(in_stream, out_stream, err_stream=STDERR, usetty=true)
  @ins = in_stream
  @outs = out_stream
  @errs = err_stream
  @usetty = usetty
end
