Segfault4r-0.0.0


#1

Segfault4r is a module that does nothing but cause a segfault. It can
be gem installed, but it was only tested on 64 bit suse. I created
this to start getting back in to c, and learn some of ruby’s c api. I
am told there could be uses for it.

Example:

require “rubygems”
require “segfault”

Segfault.now
puts “Forgive me matz.”

Let know if there are any comments or questions.

Why not just this?

Process.kill(“SEGV”, Process.pid)

I guess this must be a very tiny module?
