Ruby extension module in the 5.14 Windoze binary

Dear Rooters,

I couldn’t find the ruby extension module libRuby*.* in root_v5.14.00.win32gdk.msi.
Was it configured/built with Ruby support?

Thanks in advance.

Yours,
Kazuyoshi

p.s. Is it easy to make Windoze binary using VC++ from the source? Are there any howtos?

Ohayo gozaimasu Kazuyoshi,

Here are the configurations used to build on different platforms:
root.cern.ch/root/myconfig/Versi … onfig.html

And here are a few infos on how to build ROOT on Windows:
root.cern.ch/root/Install.html
muenster.de/~naumana/rootmsvc.html

Cheers,
Bertrand.

Konbanwa, Bertrand-san,

Thanks for the following information.

Well, the user’s guide says that the ruby module is not built by defualt:
does it mean the configure does NOT automatically enable ruby support by detecting it?

even on systems on which ruby is installed

Are there any way to see what supports are built into the binary (like HippoDraw does via “about” menu)?

I’ll follow the recipe.

Thanks again.

Yours,
Kazuyoshi

No, it must be specified a configure time, i.e. :
./configure win32 --with-ruby-incdir=c:/rubydir/include --with-ruby-libdir=c:/rubydir/lib

There is a config.status in $(ROOTSYS) when installed and built from source.
If you have cygwin, you can use root-config script in a shell as following:
root-config --config
Otherwise, just check $(ROOTSYS)/bin or $(ROOTSYS)/lib to see available libraries…

Cheers,
Bertrand.
