PATCH: Compatibility macros for Ruby 1.8.5

Reported by Wincent Colaiuta | February 29th, 2008 @ 09:17 AM | in 0.7.1

Ruby 1.8.5 compatibility came up in this thread over at Google groups:


Here is a patch making Thin buildable on 1.8.5:


Also attaching it.

I think Ruby 1.8.5 compatibility is going to be important for a lot of enterprise users. For me the main reason I want to do this is that my platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux ships with Ruby 1.8.5; Red Hat is going to support RHEL 5.1 up to 2014, and that means they'll patch Ruby 1.8.5 with security fixes for another 6 years, but they won't upgrade to post-1.8.5.

I haven't yet looked into whether the RHEL Ruby installation includes a fix for the CGI multipart issue.
