Unfortunately, I definitely need a library which could be easily used in 
C programs (or elsewhere). A ruby script does not fit my needs.

Because it is possible to embed Perl interpreter to a C program (man 
perlembed, http://perldoc.perl.org/perlembed.html), I believe there 
could be something similar in Ruby.

Thanks, P.
