Having an issue that I know is a simple fix I just can't see it. Dealing with pipes between parent and child processes and whenever I print the final result I'm getting an extra newline when I print the final result with a newline, and no newline when I don't. Here's the code, feel free to tell me if I did anything else wrong.

Is it really Worth learning ruby?
Been reading The ruby programming language by oreilly and it just seems like the more I read the more unintuitive the language is. Should I keep reading /g/?
imo Ruby is dying. I switched from to Java to Ruby like 1 year ago because of a good offer and now i regret it. Ruby is also full of magic "goodies" which sometimes (often for me) can kill you hours debugging and trying to understand wtf is going on. Better Ruby devs maybe don't feel the same way...
Op here, the code looks overly complicated and the way you write expressions seems arbitrary. Like they put alot into making the language readable, but by doing so they make the code more complicated to write.
I dont even know how they managed that.
This t︂b︂︂h be honest faⅿ
It seems cool at first because you can condense like 20 lines of code to 5, but then it just become unreadable and a pain to debug. You can mitigate these problems by writing in a more C or Python style, but at that point, why not just use Python which gets about the same performance, has more packages available, and has more career opportunities?
Why are Chinese phones better AND cheaper than the main brands like apple and Samsung.
why does all hardware today look like gross 12 y/o gamer shit?
no wonder apple is outselling PC shit, it doesn't look like it's aimed at tweens........
But the cool hardware is aimed at kids, this is not recent, they have barely any difference in performance to their cheaper versions but you don't get those razors and search lights mounted below your hand.
I'm about to receive tomorrow a replacement for the 1st series kana which I gotta say that I regret getting, such as a mechanical keyboard also from steelseries that in a few months got two switches fucked up and everytime i press once on the i or o key, it registers from 2 to 4 hits. Enough of them for me.
Can't handle this groundbreaking OLED kill count display tech?
Whatever, dude. I'll take all the ladies myself. It's not just about skill, it's also about being in the game and showing who is the top fragger. I fondle my Rival 700 as my super hot gf fondles my dick after I win ESL, faggot.

Nvidia's shitty drivers always default to limited RGB no matter what. There wasn't even a toggle in the driver control panel to change it to full until last year. You had to download a third party program to do it.
Why are tvs so shit?
I've literally never in my life seen a tv that didn't hurt my eyes with its awful image. They also always have dogshit slow, fugly, laggy and convoluted firmware. Pc monitors on the other hand have a perfect, crisp image and just werk, and just act as pure, straightforward, instant output devices instead of being half a pc on their own.

What can I do to make this sexier?
What does /g/ think of MATLAB? Has anyone ever used it to program Arduino based systems? I'm using it in school for aerospace engineering and I want to use it for some personal projects with the Arduino plug in.
I had to learn it in uni. Horrible language, but it has huge number of modules/libraries. I have no experience in programming Arduinos but I would start with C or maybe C++. There is no reason to tie yourself to a fucking expensive language.
MATLAB is fine. I personally used it in school, but I wouldn't recommend using it for Arduino because you might as well use C. My guess is that it would be easier (after an initial learning curve), more efficient, and better documented than MATLAB's plug-in.

>/g/ wiki headphone FAQ:
HD 800 measured using my measurement rig 2.0 with artificial ears and some ear-canal volume. Getting consistent results, too. I noticed that the insertion depth of the measurement mic in the ear canal has a relatively large impact on the response. I'm not sure about the large dips present in the high frequencies. Some of them went away with different insertion depth/adjustment of the headphone on the coupler but some persisted.
Here's a REW measurement data file for analysis if someone is interested:
