ffi-swig-generator version 0.2.1 by Andrea Fazzi http://kenai.com/projects/ruby-ffi == DESCRIPTION ffi-swig-generator is a ruby-ffi wrapper code generator based on SWIG interface files. ffi-swig-generator is able to traverse a XML parse tree file generated by the +swig+ command and to produce a ruby-ffi interface file from it. ffi-swig-generator is shipped with a command line tool (ffi-gen) and a rake task that automates the code generation process. ffi-swig-generator XML capabilities are provided by nokogiri. == CHANGES * 1 minor enhancement * Removed old lib/ffi-generator.rb file. == FEATURES * The program is able to generate: * all C native types * #define constants * typedefs * struct, union, array and enum types * callbacks (pointers to functions) * Naive indentation of the generated code == SYNOPSIS >From command line: ffi-gen mylib.xml mylib.rb >From a Rakefile: require 'ffi-swig-generator' FFI::Generator::Task.new :input_fn => 'my_interface_dir/*.i' output_dir => 'my_output_dir' == REQUIREMENTS * rake >= 0.8.3 * nokogiri >= 1.1.1 * swig >= 1.3 == DOWNLOAD To download and install from rubygems: [sudo] gem install ffi-swig-generator To download the develpment trunk: hg clone http://kenai.com/hg/ruby-ffi~swig-generator == EXAMPLES See the examples in examples/ folder. libc.i is an interface file containing some excerpt of libc functions. wiiuse.i is a enough complex example of a C header file interface. It reproduces the content of wiiuse.h, the header file of the wiiuse library. wiiuse is a C library that handles the connection with Nintendo Wiimote devices. The interface file is almost a mere copy/paste from the original header file. See http://github.com/remogatto/ffi-wiiuse to get updated revision of ffi-wiiuse library.
