never_say_die

DESCRIPTION:

NEVER SAY DIE lets you rescue from segmentation faults. Got a SEGV, don't worry about it anymore! Just rescue an exception and get on with life.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Oh so many problems…

  • Portability…

  • Not solving the root cause..

  • Just to name a few

SYNOPSIS:

I will let the (passing) test speak for itself:

assert_raises NeverSayDie do
  NeverSayDie.segv
end

Here is the source of the segv method:

static VALUE segv(VALUE self)
{
  int *ptr = NULL;
  *ptr = 1;

  return self;
}

REQUIREMENTS:

  • libsigsegv

INSTALL:

First, install libsigsegv. If you're on OS X, do this:

$ sudo port install libsigsegv

I'm not sure about other platforms. Then install the gem:

$ sudo gem install neversaydie
