> Aihe: trouble with ruby_options() on win32 and ruby 1.8.2

> I'm trying to embed ruby into a win32 application; however, when

> 		"-C..\\Release",
> 		"test.rb"
> 	}
> 
> 	ruby_init();
> 	ruby_options(3, argv);
> 	ruby_run();
> }
> 
> My program compiles and links properly; however, when I run it it just 
> hangs right after the ruby_options() call (I've integrated some 
> diagnostic code to determine this).  This same technique worked fine on 
> OSX, so I'm wondering if there is some issue with the Windows platform. 

See http://www.ruby-doc.org/doxygen/1.8.1/eval_8c-source.html#l01345
and http://www.ruby-doc.org/doxygen/1.8.1/ruby_8c-source.html#l01104
and http://www.ruby-doc.org/doxygen/1.8.1/ruby_8c-source.html#l00425

It looks like the first argument may have to be the script name.
