I am very new to Ruby, as in about 1 week new. General Ruby programming
is going well. However, I am having trouble accessing functions in
non-Windows DLL’s. We have custom DLL’s used to talk to test equipment.
These DLL’s are created in C using Visual C++. They work fine with the
original C program. I’m want to use Ruby scripts that access these
DLL’s. The documentation gives examples of accessing Windows libraries,
which worked for me. But my stuff is giving me the “`initialize’:
GetProcAddress:” error. I also created a very basic DLL which just
prints “Hello World” and had the same Ruby error.
Is there a pointer to some documentation/code examples I can read? Or
can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?
I’m using Ruby 1.8.6 on Windows XP and Cygwin bash shell.
