feeling quite at home now with the Ruby way of programming and
with the Ruby language, I would be interested in some more
internals. What happens when I call “ruby myapp.rb”, i.e. how
is the compiler/interpreter working?
Further, my experience in C is about nothing. I know the
C language (yes, I even understand pointers and to a certain
extend memory allocation), but have no experience.
Where can I learn more about what I need to know to understand
Ruby’s C-API and how to extend Ruby with it?
So what do you recommend reading if I want to dig deeper in
I know my question is not very specific and you may think
“get a clue and study IT at the university”, but that is not
an option at the moment.
