Calling 'C' func through W2k DLL?

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to access a Windows DLL called nidaqmx.dll.

The function is:
int32 DAQmxCreateTask (const char taskName[], TaskHandle *taskHandle);

I thought that maybe I need to use ruby-win32ext but, I am not sure
how. I would greatly appreciate any input!

Thank you,

Todd

Here's a very generic question... how can I access a Windows dll?

Use Ruby/DL. It's part of the standard Ruby distribution.

See http://ttsky.net/ruby/ruby-dl-sample/win32/ for some sample code.
