Hey guys,

I seem to have IronRuby name mangling in a rather inconsistent state.
I was under the impression it would automagically work, but it seems
it only changed the array #methods returns and not the actual methods
it responds to...

>>> BWAPI::Bwapi.BWAPIClient.is_connected
(ir):1: undefined method `is_connected' for BWAPI.Client:BWAPI::Client
>>> BWAPI::Bwapi.BWAPIClient.isConnected
=> false
>>> BWAPI::Bwapi.BWAPIClient.respond_to? :isConnected
=> true
>>> BWAPI::Bwapi.BWAPIClient.respond_to? :is_connected
=> false
>>> BWAPI::Bwapi.BWAPIClient.methods -
=> ['finalize', 'dispose', 'get_hash_code', 'equals', '==', 'data=',
'data', 'is
_connected', 'connect', 'disconnect', 'update', 'swig_c_mem_own',
=> ""

So it does not respond to 'is_connected' but 'is_connected' is in the
methods array.

Anyone an idea what I could have missed?

You can download the dll's + test source at: it requires no setup. (source
of the dll's is: not mine)

The library doesn't follow .NET naming conventions at all :(

>>> BWAPI::Bwapi.BWAPIClient.respond_to? :isConnected
=> true

Client class has a method called "isConnected".

>>> BWAPI::Bwapi.BWAPIClient.respond_to? :is_connected
=> false

Client doesn't have a method "IsConnected" nor "is_connected" hence this
returns false.

You are right. The list of method names should not include
"is_connected". I've filed a bug:

I agree this is a total pain in the ass :P The library is a wrapper
around a c++ library generated by SWIG so that's why the conventions
are so blatantly disregarded.

Thanks for dealing with this annoying edgecase :)
