TCPSocket / UDPSocket do not accept IPAddr objects.
|Target version:||next minor|
I noticed that TCPSocket/UDPSocket only accept String IPs/Hostnames, but not IPAddr objects. This is counter-intuitive since IP Addresses, along with Hostnames, are used to connect/bind to sockets.
require 'socket' require 'resolv' ip = IPAddr.new(Resolv.getaddress('www.example.com')) sock = TCPSocket.new(ip,80) TypeError: can't convert IPAddr into String from (irb):5:in `initialize' from (irb):5:in `new' from (irb):5
