Latest commit 3a4ded9 Jan 24, 2015 @cldwalker Bump to 1.3.8


Fork of ruby_core_source that uses included Ruby headers (*.h and *.inc) instead of downloading them. Used by debugger. ruby >= 2.0 is not supported - for more info.


Example use in extconf.rb:

require 'ruby_core_source'
hdrs = proc { have_header("vm_core.h") and have_header("iseq.h") }
dir_config("ruby") # allow user to pass in non-standard core include directory
if !Ruby_core_source::create_makefile_with_core(hdrs, "foo")
  # error

To add another ruby version's source to this gem's directory:

$ rake add_source VERSION=1.9.3-p0


  • @moneill for 1.9.3-p550, 1.9.3-p551 headers
  • @reedloden for 1.9.3-p547 headers
  • @andremedeiros for 2.1.1 headers
  • @stepheneb for 1.9.2-p320 headers
  • @jeremy for 1.9.3-p286 headers
  • @eiel for 1.9.3-p327, 1.9.3-p362, 2.0.0* headers
  • @willian for 1.9.3-p374 headers
  • @formigarafa for fixing 2.1.0 headers
