A couple weeks ago I asked whether YARV could compile most Ruby
on Win32 (since I could not figure out a satisfactory answer from web
pages to which I was referred). I am still hoping that someone can
apprise me as to the viability of doing this at present. Are
stand-alone Windows executables possible? Is Ruby 1.9 required or
1.84 work? Can most .rbw programs be compiled? What kind of
performance gain is typical?
I grabbed a copy of yarv and tried it out on my powerbook. It was
dead-simple to do. You should try this yourself, I bet it’ll take
you all of an hour including time for a coffee break.
PS: Don’t hijack threads, or, Don’t trim context. Both are
considered Very Bad Form.
