If I understand you correct, you are talking about 'embedding' ruby into
C. In order to understand eachother we must use same terminologi.
#1 'extensions' is when you compile some C code and use it within Ruby.
#2 'embedding' is when you interpret some Ruby code withing you C code.

From your earlier postings I would say that you are doing #2  :-)
Am I right ?
