Hi,

[ruby-dev:25647] C level set_trace_func

Shugo Maeda proposed an additional Ruby API which register
hook function like set_trace_func (ruby method) in C level.

The sample usage is as follows:

A hook function (C):
	static void
	prof_event_hook(rb_event_t event, NODE *node, VALUE self, ID mid, VALUE
	klass)
	{
	    ...
	}

Hook function registration API (Ruby C API):
	rb_set_event_hook(prof_event_hook,
	                  RUBY_EVENT_CALL | RUBY_EVENT_RETURN |
	                  RUBY_EVENT_C_CALL | RUBY_EVENT_C_RETURN);

He implemented a high performance profiler with this scheme.
This issue is still open.


[ruby-dev:25658] ext/digest and libraries for crypto

Takahiro Kambe asked why Ruby requires openssl to build
crypto libraries (such as md5, rmd160 and sha1).

Akinori MUSHA answerd to this question that it was because
OpenSSL has platform independent APIs and it makes easy to
maintain such libraries.

A new version of Oniguruma regexp engine, version 3.6.0  was imported
into Ruby CVS. In Addition,  Nobu's patch to fix overrun problem was applied.
