Curl help


#1

I’ve been searching around for a curl implementation on ruby and havn’t
had much luck. I have run into open-uri and Net::HTTP but they just
arnt as robust as curl. The closest thing i found was this previous
thread from July

http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/149926

on using ruby-dl to load libcurl. Has anyone gotten any farther on this
implementation? I have to admit I’m a ruby newbie and I’m not as strong
in C as I would like so I’m having troubles extending this example
farther. I’m able to set some of the easy_setopt options but actually
fetching the page is eluding me. Any help or ideas would be
appreciated.

Thanks,
Dallas

Hey Jan,

Thanks, I found that link too. I guess I gave up right away because the
README says

O/S
FreeBSD only now. sorry!
maybe easy to port to Linux and Win. Sombody please!

I’m using Fedora, but I guess I can try to figure out how to get it
working there (coming from PHP world still a newbie on getting libraries
like this compiled in)
