$ UNHOLY $ Compile Ruby to Python bytecode. And, in addition, translate that bytecode back to Python source code using Decompyle (included.) Requires Ruby 1.9 and Python 2.5. $ INSTALL $ First, install decompyle: > cd decompyle > python setup.py build # python setup.py install Then, in the main directory, use the tools. --- To compile Ruby to a .pyc: > bin/unholy test.rb > PYTHONPATH=python \ python test.rb.pyc --- To translate to Python: > decompyle test.rb.pyc > test.py --- And, to view the disassembled bytes: > bin/py-dis test.rb.pyc Thanks to Ned Batchelder for his rather juicy posts on dissecting Python bytecode. It is only too bad that a Rubyist got a hold of them. :( $ POTION $ Now, image if Ruby and Python were to combine into something new. Let's call it "potion": > potion test.py HELLO FROM PYTHON > potion test.rb KONNICHIWA FROM RUBY You know, it's crazy that Python and Ruby fans find themselves battling so much. While syntax is different, this exercise proves how close they are to each other! And, yes, I like Ruby's syntax and can think much better in it, but it would be nice to share libs with Python folk and not have to wait forever for a mythical VM that runs all possible languages.
