I have a simple web application that executes a .exe program through my

information from the console and output it back to the user?
I have tried the following but it does not seem to work:
puts << system.readlines(separator=$/)
Perhaps the backtick method would work better? I found that system() calls sometimes returned random data at the end of the result.
output = `/path/to/app/to/execute`
worked a lot better for my case.
