Issue #6522 has been updated by drbrain (Eric Hodel).


I don't think the call-seq changes to lib/mkmf.rb are necessary.  In some cases they don't match up with the method definitions.  Can you remove them?

I think Appendix C. can be removed entirely and and after the extconf.rb method list in "(4) prepare extconf.rb" something like "See MakeMakefile for full documentation of these functions." can be added.

Feature #6522: Migrate extconf.rb documentation from README.EXT to MakeMakefile
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6522#change-26939

Author: zzak (Zachary Scott)
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: drbrain (Eric Hodel)
Category: DOC
Target version: 2.0.0


I've added a patch to move any missing bits from README.EXT Appendix C to MakeMakefile, in exchange for "See MakeMakefile for functions that are available to extconf.rb".
