I know the subject line is quite a mouthful! Sorry about that.
I’ve managed to embed a Ruby interpreter into my application and I can
call Ruby functions from the code in my application. It works fine and
returns results to me as expected. I can also ask it to run a script
Now, I’d like to get it to do some automation for me. My project starts
up, loads a few things, sets a few properties, etc. I’d like to be able
to automate this using the embedded interpreter. I expect the code in
the script may be as simple as:
…and so on.
Now, as I understand it, in my application, I need to these C functions
VALUE set_default_color (VALUE color)
VALUE set_screen_size (VALUE w, VALUE h)
… and so on.
I just don’t know what to do next! I’m not even sure what I should
search for - should I like at how to create an extension? Does that
mean that I need to get into the mkmf, etc. and compile some things for
it to work (I shudder because my primary environment is Borland C++
Builder/ Turbo C++ and I had enough worries getting the interpreter to
be compiled in).
To use the script from the embedded interpreter, can I just ask it to
run the script?
I’m sorry if some of the questions/ explanations are a bit vague. Any
help/ direction is greatly appreciated.
