When trying to run the following code (excerpt) using sockets
with ruby 165-2 (cygwin port) and higher releases using the native win32
ports from the pragmatic programmers:
-----------------------
require "ProcessManager.rb"
require 'Socket'

 a = ProcessManager.instance
 runEndless = true

 # Open the server connection
 gs=TcpServer.open(0)
 adress=gs.adress
 adress.shift

 printf ("Process Server started on %s\n",adress.join(":"))

 # Mainloop

 while runEndless

   Thread.start(gs.accept) do |s|

   print (s, " has connected")
     theConn = PMConnection::new(s)

     # print the welcome message
     theConn.welcomeMessage
     theConn.prompt

     # commandline loop
     while( theConn.doCommand )
      theConn.prompt
     end

#goodby to the thread
   print (s, " has disconnected")
   s.close
   end #do
   end # while runEndless

 exit 0

(some code removed...)
--------------------------------------


i get the following error:

c:\Documents and Settings\jkleemann.JENS-WKS\Desktop\ruby\node>ruby
ProcessServer.rb
ProcessServer.rb:7:in `require': dlsym: Win32 error 127 -
/cygdrive/g/rubycw/lib/ruby/1.6/i386-cygwin/Socket.so (LoadError)
        from ProcessServer.rb:7

Since it seems the ruby kernel cannot load the Socket.so (some form of dll
in the cygwin world i guess) i dont know what to do. This problem occurs
under winXP, win2K with cygwin 165-2 and win32 168-8. Any idea

the path to the .so is g:\rubycw\...... so the cygwin mapping
(/cygdrive/g/....) seems to be ok
