Feature #7148

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) about 5 years ago

I propose improved `Tempfile` Tempfile without `DelegateClass()`. DelegateClass(). 
 Present `Tempfile` Tempfile has following problems. 

 1.    1) confusing inspect 

     ~~~ruby 
     

 t = Tempfile.new("foo") #=> #<File:/tmp/foo20121012-6762-12w11to> 
     
 t.is_a? File #=> false 
     ~~~ 

 2.    `#dup` 2) #dup doesn't duplicate `IO` 

     ~~~ruby 
     IO 

 t = Tempfile.new("foo") 
     
 t.dup.close 
     
 t.read #=> IOError: closed stream 
     ~~~ 

 3.    3) finalizer performs unlink even when it has been duplicated 

     ~~~ruby 
     

 t = Tempfile.new("foo") 
     
 path = t.path #=> "/tmp/foo20121012-7533-1q537gq" 
     
 File.exist? path #=> true 
     
 tt = t.dup 
     
 t = nil 
     
 GC.start 
     
 File.exist? path #=> false 
     ~~~ 

 I think these problems caused by using `DelegateClass()`. DelegateClass(). 
 Therefore, I made a patch to resolve the problems. 
 The patched Tempfile class is a subclass of File.
