How to correctly require my own DLL in ruby 1.9.1?


#1

I made a example.dll by using SWIG with Visual C++ Express 2008 Edition
base on the ruby 1.9.1 p0 binary downloaded from Ruby website.

However, when I run require ‘example’ in my ruby codes, it always
complain following messages.

C:\Documents and Settings\davidlee\My Documents\Visual Studio
2008\Projects\test\Release>ruby test1.rb
test1.rb:1:in require': no such file to load -- example (LoadError) from test1.rb:1:in

I am sure my example.dll was already under the current working
directory.
Who can help me on this issue?
Thanks.

Rename it as example.so. 1.9 doesn’t use .dll extension
anymore.

It works just as you said.
Thanks a lot!
