StringIO#to_str

Added by MartinBosslet (Martin Bosslet) over 10 years ago. Updated over 10 years ago.

Status:
Closed
Priority:
Normal
Target version:
[ruby-core:41340]

Description

The following raises an error currently:

require 'stringio'
require 'openssl'

io = StringIO.new(OpenSSL::ASN1::Integer.new(1).to_der)
asn = OpenSSL::ASN1.decode io

The reason is that ossl_obj2bio[1] looks for a
T_FILE first, and then it tries to coerce the
input to a String using StringValue. StringValue
itself again expects the presence of to_str,
which is currently missing for StringIO, but
could be easily provided by aliasing
StringIO#string.

I could imagine that the heuristic of ossl_obj2bio
is quite common when working on binary data in a
C extension. Would it therefore be OK to add
StringIO#to_str? Patch attached.
