I’d like to request a quick implementation status update on the Ruby
standard libraries that contain native code …
If you are working on any of the following or know any additional
information about any of the following, could you please post a followup
The following standard libraries are implemented at least to some degree
in the IronRuby.Libraries assembly (not sure which are totally
digest.so -> IronRuby.Libraries\Digest\Digest.cs
digest\md5.so -> IronRuby.Libraries\Digest\Digest.cs
openssl.so -> IronRuby.Libraries\OpenSSL\OpenSSL.cs
socket.so -> IronRuby.Libraries\Builtin\Socket.cs
strscan.so -> IronRuby.Libraries\Builtin\StringScanner.cs
zlib.so -> IronRuby.Libraries\Zlib\zlib.cs
The following libraries are used by the simple gem and rails use cases
that I’ve been investigating, but don’t yet have a checked
nkf.so -> Andrew P.?
stringio.so -> Eduardo?
syck.so -> John M.?
thread.so -> can be replaced by original thread.rb?
Win32API.so -> can be just deleted?
The following libraries are not used in any of the simple gems and rails
use cases that I’ve been considering. (please let us know if there are
any in here that you think should be made a priority):
dbm.so -> used by YAML?
dl.so -> used by sqlite3 driver?
iconv.so -> used by actionmailer?
readline -> used by debug.rb
