Thanks, fxri pointed me to the right direction. I already solved problem
2 by using IO.pipe which I didn't know before and was positively
surprised that it works on Windows, and hopefully I can conquer IRB now.
I will also have a look at REPL.

However, it's quite annoying that methods like IO#nread or IO#ready?
aren't implemented on Windows (event with requiring "io/wait" #ready?
always returns false and #nread gives a NoMethodError). I wish that
project should only work on Linux...

Thanks,
Marvin
