ANN: ruby2c 1.0.0 beta 5 released


#1

After almost a year, I’m pleased to announce that another beta of
ruby2c is available. The project stagnated for a bit, but is coming
back in force! We’ve solidified this release by gemifying it,
splitting up our tail end translator to convert to either ANSI C or
ruby internals C, and making it much more happy with other tool-
chains (like our obfuscator).

ruby_to_c translates a static ruby subset to C. Hopefully it works.

RubyToC has the following modules:

Rewriter      - massages the sexp into a more consistent form.
TypeChecker   - type inferencer for the above sexps.
RubyToRubyC   - converts a ruby (subset) sexp to ruby interals C.
RubyToAnsiC   - converts a ruby (subset) sexp to ANSI C.

and the following tools:

translate.rb  - Translates a given file to C.

CHANGES:

  • 6 minor enhancements:
    • Split RubyToC to RubyToRubyC and RubyToAnsiC.
    • Extended Environment to be more flexible for various situations.
    • Removed propaganda (bloat) from release.
    • Gemified and reorganized things. Support still needs splitting up.
    • Flipped a lot of internal naming to use Unique.
    • Added ruby_to_c_show (like parse_tree_show).
  • 4(ish) bug fixes:

    • Fixed many other bugs.
