Ruby.DL and FFI libraries are great for programmers like me who are not
internet programmers, but are more interested in scientific and number
I really like FFI, though I started with DL since at that time FFI won’t
build on windoz. Good part of DL is that it is part of standard libary,
not supported (fully) by JRuby though. FFI on the other hand has matured
and is available on windoz, greatest joy is same script will, in all
probability run across all implementations.
recently few days back I saw some svn msgs suggesting that DL’s
dependency on libffi was removed, since libffi won’t build on windoz
(again!). so my question is will DL in future be based on libffi ? why
just not use FFI. Its API and idea is very good and ruby like, against
DL’s idea of giving in C snippets to be interpreted by DL ?
