To ease processing the returned output, this possible trailing newline is stripped by this keyword. The return code RC is returned as a positive integer in range from 0 to as returned by the executed command. On some operating systems notable Windows original return codes can be something else, but this keyword always maps them to the range. Since the RC is an integer, it must be checked e. This keyword reads the specified file and returns the contents. Line breaks in content are converted to platform independent form.
In addition to the encodings supported by the underlying Python implementation, the following special encoding values can be used: Use the default system encoding. Use the console encoding.
Outside Windows this is same as the system encoding. Fail if characters cannot be decoded default. Ignore characters that cannot be decoded. Replace characters that cannot be decoded with a replacement character. This keyword reads the specified file and returns the contents as is.
Lines are returned as a single string catenated back together with newlines and the number of matched lines is automatically logged. Possible trailing newline is never returned. The file is logged with the INFO level. The path can be given as an exact path or as a glob pattern.
If the path is a pattern, the keyword waits until all matching items are removed. The timeout is given as a timeout string, e. The time string format is described in an appendix of Robot Framework User Guide. If the timeout is negative, the keyword is never timed-out. The keyword returns immediately, if the path does not exist in the first place.
If the path is a pattern, the keyword returns when an item matching it is created. The keyword returns immediately, if the path already exists. If the directory for the file does not exist, it is created, along with missing intermediate directories. If content is given as a Unicode string, it is first converted to bytes character by character.

In particular, the class handles addresses using struct sockaddr structures packed into Ruby strings, which can be a joy to manipulate. Class Socket defines constants for use throughout the socket library. Individual constants are available only on architectures that support the related facility. Although we don't document the Protocol class here, you should probably study it if you are considering writing your own network client.
The get , post , and head requests raise exceptions on any error, including some HTTP status responses that would normally be considered recoverable. There are two ways of handling these. The code below illustrates the handling of an HTTP status , a redirect. POPMail objects, one per message stored on the server. Although the class description that follows indicates that Net:: Telnet is a subclass of class Socket , this is a lie.
In reality, the class delegates to Socket. The net effect is the same: The methods new , cmd , login , and waitfor take an optional block. If present, the block is passed output from the server as it is received by the routine. This can be used to provide realtime output, rather than waiting for for example a login to complete before displaying the server's response. Waits for the server to respond with a string that matches a string or pattern.
If options is not a Hash , it is compared against the cumulative server output as that output is received using options. It is likely that you will want to use a regular expression in this case. If options is a Hash , then options['Match'] , options['Prompt'] , or options['String'] provides the match.
In the latter case, the string will be converted to a regular expression before being used. The output of this script is shown in Figure Since environment variables contain a lot of useful information for a CGI script, CGI makes accessing them very easy—environment variables are accessible as attributes of CGI objects. Cookies are represented using a separate object of class CGI:: Cookie , containing the following accessors:. Each of these methods is named after the corresponding HTML feature or close to it.
