(Massimiliano Mirra) #1

cliff - Command Line Interface Fast Framework
csv - Module for handling Comma Separated Values
ecalc - Equation Calc
graphr - Draw graphs via dot
howdy - Simple instant messaging system for local nets.
mtyper - A language/layout-independent typing tutor
rdoc - Generates documentations from ruby sources
rdqs - Ruby DataQuery Shell
signals - Simple GTK-like callbacks
testunit - A framework for unit testing
testunit-runit - RUnit compatibility layer for Test::Unit
webfetcher - Fetch large amounts of documents and images from the web.
webrick - A web server toolkit like bricks.
xbuiltins - Additions to builtin classes

Right now all available modules are in pure Ruby. I’d like to
experiment with binary extensions, anyone having a module with an
extension compiled for more than one platform (at least linux-i386 and
mingw32 or cygwin) would care to send it to me?

(Patrik Sundberg) #2

ruby-gtk could be a candidate perhaps?

Sure. I can compile the linux-i386 myself (well, after I’ve figured
out how to compile for a specific processor), can you provide the
compiled thing for mingw32 or cygwin or some other platform?

I have it compiled for FreeBSD and had to compile it for cygwin some weeks
ago. I am on the road for one more week and can’t get a hold of the cygwin
version.

How would you like this delivered?

Under Linux this would be a .so, under cygwin I guess it would be a
.dll, I don’t know how it is called under FreeBSD but that’s what is
needed. :slight_smile:

Where to put .so’s and such is configured on the end user system.

It is made that way to let users have local installations, so they
aren’t forced to install as root.
