If you're patient enough, I'll make a tutorial on how to :
	- Embed at will Ruby into C/C++ and make Ruby/C++ communicate together at 
runtime.
	- Compile it under VC++6.0 (if I've got enough time since this is quite 
unstaightforward... :) )

I prepared a C++ class to make all this stuff.

All of this will be released, I hope, in 2 weeks.
