- Generation of FFI methods, structures, unions, enumerations and callbacks
- Generation of YARD documentation comments
- Tested with headers of the following libraries:
- CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework)
- Ruby 1.9
- Clang 3.0 (Download, use the binaries or configure with
These requirements are only for running the generator. The generated files are Ruby 1.8 compatible and do not need Clang.
Use the following interface in a script or Rake task:
require "ffi/gen" FFI::Gen.generate( module_name: "Clang", ffi_lib: "clang", headers: ["clang-c/Index.h"], cflags: `llvm-config --cflags`.split(" "), prefixes: ["clang_", "CX"], output: "clang-c/index.rb" )
Other generated files can be found in the test/output directory.
You may need to set additional include directories:
Your GCC include paths can be seen with:
`gcc -print-prog-name=cc1` -v
