Dear all,

So I am trying to run a watir test application. Everything seems to be going well except I need to log each step that happens.
I am able to log using the php script, but have not yet figured out how to write to a log file using ruby.
Now since I am more experienced with php, I thought it'd be wise to pass the ruby data back to php before I can write to the log file. Below is my code;

// Call ruby script with watir/selenium webdriver to run test
function run_test ($browser, $country_code, $test) 
{
    //echo $test["test_name"];

    //-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    $launch_time = date('Y-m-d_His');
    echo "At $launch_time Running Test " . $test["test_number"] . " - " .$test["test_name"] . " ... \n";

    $arg0 = str_replace(" ", "...",$browser);
    $arg1 = str_replace(" ", "...",$country_code);
    $arg2 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["test_name"]);
    $arg3 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["home_url"]);
    $arg4 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["start_id"]);
    $arg5 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["receiver_price_local"]);
    $arg6 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["receiver_price_foreign"]);     
    $arg7 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["receiver_phone"]);
    $arg8 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["receiver_first_name"]);
    $arg9 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["receiver_last_name"]);
    $arg10 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["paypal_email"]);
    $arg11 = str_replace(" ", "...",$test["paypal_pwd"]);   
    $arg12 = str_replace(" ", "...",$launch_time); 

    $string_to_write = "------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- \n";
    $string_to_write.= "A test has been carried out with the following details \n";
    $string_to_write.= "Browser: ".$browser."\n";   
    $string_to_write.= "Country Code: ".$country_code."\n";
    $string_to_write.= "Test name: ".$test["test_name"]."\n";
    $string_to_write.= "Home URL: ".$test["home_url"]."\n";
    $string_to_write.= "Test ID: ".$test["start_id"]."\n";  
    $string_to_write.= "Item Price (local): ".$test["receiver_price_local"]."\n";   
    $string_to_write.= "Item Price (Foreign): ".$test["receiver_price_foreign"]."\n";
    $string_to_write.= "Receiver first name: ".$test["receiver_first_name"]."\n";
    $string_to_write.= "Receiver last name: ".$test["receiver_last_name"]."\n";
    $string_to_write.= "Receiver phone: ".$test["receiver_phone"]."\n";
    $string_to_write.= "Client email: ".$test["paypal_email"]."\n";

    // launches the ruby irb script to run selenium driver for browser
    //$mytest ="ruby C:/wamp/www/voucher_test/test_purchase.rb $arg0 $arg1 $arg2 $arg3  $arg4 $arg5 $arg6 $arg7 $arg8 $arg9  $arg10 $arg11  $arg12";

    //echo $mytest;
    //exit();
    $outp = system("ruby C:/wamp/www/voucher_test/test_purchase.rb $arg0 $arg1 $arg2 $arg3  $arg4 $arg5 $arg6 $arg7 $arg8 $arg9  $arg10 $arg11  $arg12");

    // Check for fail
    echo "Watir script returned:\n" . strtoupper($outp) . "\n dbg pos:" . strpos("PASS", strtoupper($outp)) . "\n";
    if (strpos("FAIL", strtoupper($outp)) || strpos("ERROR",strtoupper($outp)) ) 
    {
        echo "Test Failed .. emailing Admin ..\n\n";
        //writeToLog($browser, $country_code, $test, $launch_time, "FAIL");
        $string_to_write.= "Test failed. Watir returned output: ".strtoupper($outp)."\n";

    } elseif (strpos(strtoupper($outp), "PASS") ) {
        echo "Test Passed \n\n";
        //writeToLog($browser, $country_code, $test, $launch_time, "PASS");
        $string_to_write.= "Test passed. Watir returned output: ".strtoupper($outp)."\n";
    } else 
    {
        echo "Unknown test status\n$outp\n\n";
        $string_to_write.= "Unknown test status. Watir returned output: ".strtoupper($outp)."\n";
        //writeToLog($browser, $country_code, $test, $launch_time, "FAIL");
    }

    $string_to_write.= "------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- \n \n";

    //Write to the log file
    test_log_write($string_to_write);
}

And this is my ruby code;
