^ Why can't ruby be used from a (native) thread other than the main one?
50143 [loriend bigp] Yesterday I was assisting in writing the server for a multiplayer gladiatorial combat game that embeds ruby. This server has an MFC gui that spawns a single hi-priority thread that runs all our game logic (this is what we are doing with ruby). However when ruby is initialised from the child thread and only used from that child thread it segfaults strait away. As soon as the ruby initialisation and code was moved back to the main thread it worked.
