Compiling Ruby Scripts (Ruby 1.9.x)


#1

I was wondering if it is possible to compile Ruby code for Ruby 1.9.x .
I understand that by compile, it just packages the interpreter/VM and
all included libraries, into one huge executable. Does RubyScript2Exe
support Ruby 1.9.x? If not, are there any alternatives that do?

JRuby will have 1.9 support soon, and supports precompilation and
packaging/bundling the code in a single jar file. Is that what you’re
looking for?

If you are deploying to OS X, MacRuby’s HotCocoa library has a built-
in rake task that handles the packaging for you. See:

Hi Charlie,

Can you guess (estimate) as to “how soon” for packaging as a single jar?

Rawr basically does this already:

http://rawr.rubyforge.org/

We hope to have 1.9 support all finished by Christmas time or so.
Parser/interpreter work is in progress, M17N is well under way, and I’ll
do the compiler after the parser’s done.

So the compiled package (rwar file) runs on JRuby?

And, are there any solutions for the official Ruby 1.9 stream?
