I just found out about Ruby2CExtension (http://ruby2cext.rubyforge.org/
), and a search of the forum came up empty, so I thought I'd ask if anyone's tried it.
It only works with 1.8.x (1.8.4 or later, I think), but it could make a Ruby game a bit faster while also adding another layer of obfuscation to a distributed (commercial?) game.
I put it in my todo list, and I'll try to update this thread when I get around to testing it (if anyone cares).
Huh... That's pretty cool! I gotta try this
I'd be interested in the results. From the website it doesn't sound like a real performance improvement over just using Ruby 1.9 though :)
Yeah... which makes me wonder even more why no one's updated it. There must be quite a few changes between 1.8.x and 1.9 "under the hood" that directly affect this gem. *shrug*
