Reply-To: announce / rubynet.org

RubyInline 2.2.0 has been released!

Ruby Inline is my quick attempt to create an analog to Perl's 
Inline::C. It allows you to embed C external module code in your ruby 
script directly. The code is compiled and run on the fly when needed. 
The ruby version isn't near as feature-full as the perl version, but it 
is neat!

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

+ Quick and easy inlining of your C code embedded in your ruby script.
+ Rudimentary automatic conversion between ruby and C basic types
(char, unsigned, unsigned int, char *, int, long, unsigned long).
+ inline_c_raw exists for when the automatic conversion isn't 
sufficient.
+ Only recompiles if the C code has changed.
+ Pretends to be secure.
+ Only uses standard ruby libraries, nothing extra to download.
+ Simple as it can be. Less than 230 lines long... um... sorta simple.

CHANGES:

+ Touch all generated files to avoid unnecessary diffs.
- Added good profiling example in tutorial/*.
- Added profiling strategy in README.txt.
