Help embedding Ruby in Visual C++ project


#1

Hi,
I am trying to embed Ruby within a Visual C++ project, but I am having
trouble loading my script file.

How do I tell the Ruby interpreter where to look for my script file?

If I use ruby_options(), then my program hangs. So, I am trying to
pass the “-S” flag to Ruby, and I have set RUBYPATH to the directory
where “test.rb” lives.

Note: I am able to load the script if I put the script in the same
directory as my source files (which isn’t the same directory as the
built C++ .exe). I do not understand why this works. Ideally, I would
like to tell the Ruby interpreter where to find my “test.rb” script.
How do I do this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Here is a code snippet:
int state;
int rargc=2;
char *rargv[2], rarg1[MAX_PATH]

strcpy(rarg1, “-S”);
rargv[0] = “ruby”;
rargv[1] = rarg1;

NtInitialize(&rargc, (char ***)&rargv);

ruby_init();
ruby_init_loadpath();

rb_load_protect(rb_str_new2(“test.rb”), Qfalse, &state);

Well, ruby use the variable $LOAD_PATH to know where it must search a
library. This is this variable which is initialized when you call
rb_init_loadpath() and by default (with $SAFE == 0) it add `.’, the
current directory, in it. This is why it find the script when it’s in
the
current directory.

You can use, ruby_incpush() if you want to add directories to this
variable.

intern.h:void ruby_incpush _((const char
));

When we want to test something in Ruby using C we have a test harness.
I’ve stripped out the non-relevant code to reveal this. Hope it helps

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
NtInitialize(&argc, &argv);

    ruby_init();

    ruby_script("embedded");

    char    *args[] =
    {
            "arg1",
            "arg2",
            "arg3",
            NULL
    };

    ruby_set_argv((sizeof(args) / sizeof(args[0])) - 1, args);

    char    *options[] =
    {
            "",
            NULL
    };

    ruby_options(0, options);       // required to setup TK properly

    ruby_init_loadpath();


    rb_load_file("d:\\ruby_1_8_2_15\\samples\\tk\\tkhello.rb");

    ruby_run();

    return 0;
