Let's start with: 
I have no clue what a DLL is.

Let's add: 
I also do not know C or C++.

I want to write a program in Ruby, and 'compile' it to a DLL.

:-) Have I asked for the impossible?

It's for Half-Life, the game...

I guess HL is a collection of DLL files that communicate, 
and any Artificial Intelligence (bot) that has been written for
HL or CS has to be a DLL.

I figure there isn't anything out there that's easy to use...
http://raa.ruby-lang.org/search.rhtml?search=DLL doesn't
really return what I'm looking for... (unless I'm looking in the 
wrong spot)

... and since DLLs (I assume) are normally
done with C or C++, and since Ruby is written in C... 

... I'm hoping it's not too much to ask for. :-)

Where can I start?
