exposed to the end user? or just for development use?

If it’s just development use you’re after simply require ‘your/lib’ and
go
to town? irb also loads .irbrc when it launches, first from the current
path then $HOME/.irbrc so you can create a .irbrc that
preloads/configures
the debugging environment for you.

I don’t have any experience embedding it ( I think that’s what you’re
after?
)

The easiest way to do it is just create a file for IRB to load which
contains everything you want it to have access to, then do

irb -r the_file.rb

and you’re good to go.

my hack that i use for quick debugging on my programs is

require ‘pp’

do some setup

$stdout.write("# “); $stdout.flush
while line = gets
pp eval(line)
$stdout.write(”\n# "); $stdout.flush

or

pp main_object.instance_eval(line)

end

problem is of course that you have to make all your commands one-liners,
but aside from that it works like a charm
