This has to do with your “o.read”.
TextMate::Executor.run() is worth knowing about,
but I couldn't get it to work in this case, as it seems to expect a Ruby file.
It’s not expecting a ruby file, however, it is made for running something via an
interpreter and arguments needs to be split up, e.g. this works (tested it):
TextMate::Executor.run("/usr/bin/seq", "10", "5",
"50", :use_hashbang => false)
Without the :use_hashbang set to false, it will try to find the interpreter via the last
argument (if it’s a file).
There is still a minor issue in that it will initially run the interpreter (first
argument) with “--version” to show what version is being used (in the output window). The
actual argument can be changed, but there is no way to disable the feature (but there
probably should be).
