Issue #9467 has been updated by Mathieu L. Bouchard.


Got the same thing and also this error when the block ends :
/usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/net/http.rb:1032:in `initialize': can't convert Net::ReadAdapter into String (TypeError)
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/net/http.rb:1032:in `new'
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/net/http.rb:1032:in `block in get'

This is when ruby 1.9.3p194 (2012-04-20 revision 35410) [i686-linux].

It worked on ruby 1.8.7 (2012-02-08 patchlevel 358) [i686-linux]

Bug #9467: Net::HTTP does unzip zipped content

----------------------------------------
According to the Compression section of the documentation of Net::HTTP, it should automatically uncompress compressed responses. However, when I triedwith a number of JSON requests with different servers, I am not getting automatic decompression.

require 'net/http'
uri = URI("http://yourhost.com")
http = Net::HTTP.new(uri.host, uri.port)
res = http.get(uri.request_uri)
