Signaling Ruby from C/C++

You’re going to face this problem in any case, since you want your Ruby
code to be responsive to interruptions from the native code. You can set
the reader socket nonblocking and poll it in your main Ruby loop, or you
can read the reader socket on a separate Ruby thread and have it signal
your main loop by scheduling objects onto a Queue.
