hi Huw C.,
thanks for your reply.
the problem I have now is that I want to hook up my codes (all c++
developed in visual studio 2005) with SketchUp (google product).
SketchUp has a ruby interface so that I can grep data from model and
dump them into my codes, and my codes will spit the results back to
SketchUp through Ruby interface.
Now the questions are:
a. how can I compiled my codes into dll so that ruby can call ( can
“ruby in steel” do it?)
b. Installation issues as it all relates with .net and sketchup or any
other application should be able to find the system lib. I am not sure
whether SketchUp has manifest files, but if not, that will that affect
the plugin? If it is vc6.0, then you can copy system dlls around, but it
is not the case with .net.
hope anyone can give some inputs. If ruby talks vs2005, it is huge gains

There is also an integrated Visual IDE with IronRuby [I think].
Just to clarify, Ruby In Steel has a free edition for standard Ruby
hosted in Visual Studio 2008, a free edition for IronRuby (VS2008), a
lowcost ‘Text Edition’ ($49 including optionally a Ruby-specific version
of VS2008), plus our high-end Developer Edition (for both VS2008 and
VS2005). While the commercial editions support multi-language projects
(e.g. Ruby and C# or C++ in the same Solution), we do not have any
particular support for C++ (which I think is what the original
questioner was interested in) beyond what is already in Visual Studio.
