Hi

I personally still dislike pread/pwrite method name, but I give up to argue it because I'm worry about making endless discussion. Let's assign this ticket to matz and hear his opinions. :)

----------------------------------------
Feature #4532: [PATCH] add IO#pread and IO#pwrite methods
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/4532

Author: Eric Wong
Status: Assigned
Priority: Normal
Assignee: Yukihiro Matsumoto
Category: core
Target version: 1.9.x


These methods are useful for safe/concurrent file I/O in
multi-thread/process environments and also fairly standard
nowadays especially in systems supporting pthreads.

pread() is already used internally for IO.copy_stream
