Thanks for the feedback! Another issue:

I want to dump the state of the Ruby interpreter and load it later. Just
like the image file used in Smalltalk.

I searched RAA and found:
http://raa.ruby-lang.org/cat.rhtml?category_major=...
But was not satisfied.

Any clue or idea?

Well you could try Marshal.dump(ObjectSpace), but I wouldn't. As cool
as Ruby is and as cool as Smalltalk is, Ruby != Smalltalk. Ruby is
not based on images, it's source-file oriented like perl or python,
and was never really meant to be dumped into an image form. Of course
you could probably write an implementation of ruby based on images
instead of source files.
