I am trying to get the backquotes to print everything "as it comes" instead of
after the backquotes are done. Does anyone have any idea how to do this?? Using
$stdout.sync = true does not work. Here is the relevant part of the script

def make( action )
	print `cd #{ @ports_dir }/#{ @category }/#{ @portname };
		make #{ action } #{ autoclean? ? "clean" : "" }`
end

What happens is I install a port it sits for a very long time and then prints
huge gobs of info all at once. Everything works right, I just want it flushed
right away.

Sincerly,
Chris Moline
