Ruby and COM

Hmm… Does anyone know of a stable Ruby-COM bridge which will let one do
things like importing DLLs, querying for interfaces and calling their
methods? Is there anything stable available out there?

Or at least a possibility to call C++ code from Ruby resolving all this
CoInitilize(), STA and so on stuff?

There are some libs:
http://raa.ruby-lang.org/cat.rhtml?category_major=Library;category_minor=Win32

I haven’t used any of those but you can find examples by searching the
archives of this newsgroup / mailing list.

Kind regards

For just DLL, look no further than DL (in the standard library), for
OLE (a COM ancestor), check out Win32OLE (also in the standard
library). I have used both in the past.

Good luck
