Adding a finalizer to a ruby object

Hi

How do I add a finalizer to a ruby object?

I’ve tried using ObjectSpace and define_finalizer.
But the proc never got executed when I called
ObjectSpace.garbage_collect
Calling System::GC.collect had the same outcome

and implementing a Finalize method doesn’t seem to have any effect
either

class MyClass

def Finalize
puts “in Finalize”
end

def finalize
puts “in lower finalize”
end

end

MyClass.new
System::GC.collect System::GC.max_generation,
System::GCCollectionMode.forced
#ObjectSpace.garbage_collect

Thanks

Garbage collection in Ruby is kind of tricky.

What about using a proc, or block and running finalize after yield or
proc.call?

Ivan, I’m not sure but I’ve asked the rest of the team and someone will
get back to you shortly.

I specifically wanted to find a counterpart for this C#

public class SomeClass {

private object _unmanagedResource;

public SomeClass(object unmanagedResource){
_unmanagedResource = unmanagedResource;

~SomeClass(){
_unmanagedResource.Cleanup();
_unmanagedResource = null;
}
}

I was writing about the dispose pattern and wanted to include a full
counterpart implementation with a finalizer for unmanaged resources.

oh if that is the case can they also get back to me with overriding an
indexer
(http://ironruby.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=3392)?
I think that would result in a complete chapter with regards to CLR
interop.

Thanks a lot :smiley:

We don’t support finalizers yet, but it shouldn’t be too much work to
make ObjectSpace#define_finalizer work with Ruby objects. We might also
consider providing some means to override CLR Finalize method.
