Hi, I'm trying out the different standard libraries via IronRuby and some throw errors once I try to require or use them. The problematic ones are: RSS Finalize Open3 OpenSSL Shell WeakRef Also resolv and resolv-replace do not work but I guess it's because of their win32 requests. Should the above libraries work or is it a bug? Thanks, Shay.

OpenSSL is being worked on by Jirapong. The other ones probably need to be rewritten in C#. Feel free to file bugs, or claim a library to work on ;) JD ...there is no try

So just to make sure - there are no plans of making those work for V1.0, right? Thanks Jim!

Here's a quick rundown (~30mins worth of looking at these libraries) RSS: RSS should work, it appears there is a bug in there with Class.inherited Tracking with CodePlex 1483 Finalize: We need to figure out what the ObjectSpace finalizers really do, and if we can implement those methods. Tracking with CodePlex 1484 Open3: Uses fork, so it will not work unless we completely re-implement it. The workaround would be having someone port the win32-open3 gem to C# Tracking with CodePlex 1485 OpenSSL: Jirapong is working on this. Shell: Uses Thread.exclusive, which is defined in the thread standard library (as opposed to the Thread builtin class), which needs to be ported. Tracking with CodePlex 1485 WeakRef: Uses ObjectSpace#id2ref and it may be reliant on the CRuby GC internals Tracking with CodePlex 1487 Resolv and resolv-replace should be made to work, but they require us to figure out what portions of win32 they need. Tracking with CodePlex 1488 Ideally all of these should work for 1.0, but we may not have resources to do them. Anyone who wants to is welcome to help bang at them to narrow down the bugs, and port the needed libraries. JD ...there is no try

If you know an existing Ruby application which depends on these libraries, then that'll make it more worthwile to get them working. ~Jimmy On May 29, 2009, at 2:13 PM, "Shay Friedman" <email@example.com>
