im putting together a server with multiple clients establishing a
connection... I need each client connected to retreave a string from the
server then the client's will process this string... string = gets, this
is how the server sends out the string but only the first client will
process this string...
I need the server to do something like this...

for each.connection.write(string)

does that make sense? im not sure how to accomplish this...

here is the source...

#server.rb
require 'socket'

server = TCPServer.new(1234)

loop do
  Thread.start(server.accept) do |connection|
        print connection
      str  = gets
        connection.write(str)# this needs to stay alive or actave for
each connection
    end
end
#---------------end of server-----------


#Client.rb
require 'socket'

while true
sleep 1
streamSock = TCPSocket.new( "127.0.0.1", 1234 )
  var1,var2,var3 = streamSock.recv( 100 ).chomp.split

  if var1 == 'example'
    print var2+"\n"
          print var3+"\n"


  elsif var1 == 'test'
    print var2+"\n"
    print var3+"\n"

  end
end
#-----------------end client-------------
