Off the wall question

I found myself wondering if anyone has written any kind of rubyinline
in reverse.

What I’m talking about is a tool that could process some of the core
ruby source files like array.c, hash.c etc., and produce equivalent
ruby code.

Of course this wouldn’t work for arbitrary c code, or even arbitrary
ruby extensions, but…

There’s a lot of pure-C-ness in the Ruby stdlib that this isn’t
workable. See String#split’s implementation.
