Sockets and threads - Ruby

Probably a dumb question, but here goes: If I have a TCPSocket object that is being used by two threads, one of which only reads from it while the other only writes to it, does access to the object need to be synchronized? I know that access to the two directions of a Socket in Java are independent for this purpose, but wanted to check to see if the same was true in Ruby. Thanks! -Mark...

    Default Sockets and threads

    Probably a dumb question, but here goes:

    If I have a TCPSocket object that is being used by two threads,
    one of which only reads from it while the other only writes to it,
    does access to the object need to be synchronized?

    I know that access to the two directions of a Socket in Java
    are independent for this purpose, but wanted to check to see
    if the same was true in Ruby.

    Its the same, the only thing the 2 streams of a tcp socket really share is a
    number. Theres no underlying dependence.
