ObjectSpace.define_finalizer does not run some procedure str

I have Ruby 182-15 on WinXP

When I run the code below only the first finalizer runs. The others
two don’t seem to run. I found similar posts on other sites, but no
solutions.

You can duplicate the first and it runs twice (so two finalizers is
ok).

To me they are all somewhat identical. Can anyone tell me why it does
not work.

I have a number of machines that run testware in ruby 152 so I’d like
to KNOW that upgrading will fix the problem before taking this path.

------- Test.rb --------

class MyClass

def initialize

ObjectSpace.define_finalizer(self,self.class.method(:finalize).to_proc)
ObjectSpace.define_finalizer(self,proc{|id| puts “proc final
#{id}”})
ObjectSpace.define_finalizer(self,self.dofinalize)
end

def self.finalize(id)
    puts "Object #{id} dying at #{Time.new}"
end

def self.f2(id)
    puts "F2 #{id}"
end

def dofinalize
  return Proc.new { |param|
    puts "Doing finalize #{param[0]}"
  }
end

end

MyClass.new
ObjectSpace.garbage_collect

puts “DONE”

There’s a subtle difference between the first and the other two: the
first one does not create a closure which binds “self” to the current
instance. That might be an explanation.

Kind regards

finalizers cannot refer the to object being finalized. in the second
and
third cases you hold a reference to the object (implicit in
Proc.new/proc)
inside the created closures - thereby preventing them from being run.
inotherwords you’ve created finalizers that prevent the object from
being
finalized! :wink:

Still the fact remains interesting that at least one of the other
finalizers is being called when the process exits. So the “blocking”
finalizers just block themselves but not other finalizers.
