Event_hook 1.0.0 Released


#1

event_hook version 1.0.0 has been released!

Wraps rb_add_event_hook so you can write fast ruby event hook
processors w/o the speed penalty that comes with set_trace_func (sooo
sloooow!). Calls back into ruby so you don’t have to write C.

 % ruby demo.rb
 # of iterations = 1000000
                           user     system      total        real
 null_time             0.120000   0.000000   0.120000 (  0.125279)
 ruby time             0.560000   0.000000   0.560000 (  0.562834)
 event hook            3.160000   0.010000   3.170000 (  3.175361)
 set_trace_func       34.530000   0.100000  34.630000 ( 34.942785)

Wow thanks for doing this–anybody know why rb_add_event_hook is so much
faster then?

A drop in replacement for set_trace_func might be sweet, too :slight_smile:

set_trace_func requires creating a new Binding object for each event
triggered. In Ruby 1.8.x this is very very slow operation. Ruby 1.9.x
reuses these Binding objects as much as possible, which makes this
operation much faster and lead to a way more acceptable speed of
debug.rb.

most of the cost is block activation.
