I'm working on some code using XML RPC in ruby and need to see some debug info, how do you do that?
Reading the source of the package, XMLRPC::Client uses Net::HTTP in turn as its transport.
So I think you should be able to monkey-patch a method into the XMLRPC::Client accordingly:
require 'pp' # the magic happens here class XMLRPC::Client def set_debug @http.set_debug_output($stderr); end end server = XMLRPC::Client.new2("http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping") server.set_debug result = server.call("weblogUpdates.ping", "Copenhagen.rb", "http://www.copenhagenrb.dk/") pp result
(sample for XMLRPC snarfed from here).
