trouble installing CPAN module "Ruby"

technojosh has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I come to the monks for assistance. I have a large bit of Perl code and modules I have written for our company. We are now going to try to get a bit of work somebody has done in a ruby class, integrated into my project. My ideal solution for this is some flavor of inline ruby, or otherwise accessing the ruby interpreter on the system to interact with a ruby class from within our Perl code.

I am on Windows 7, using AS Perl 5.14 (x86)
CPAN: Ruby

I get the makefile to run successfully. It's output:

C:\Ruby-0.07>perl makefile.pl Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3) Using C:\Ruby192\bin\ruby.exe ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09) [i386-mingw32] ruby-inc: C:/Ruby192/lib/ruby/1.9.1/i386-mingw32 libdir : C:/Ruby192/lib ruby-lib: -lmsvcrt-ruby191 ruby-hdr: C:/Ruby192/include/ruby-1.9.1 Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lmsvcrt-ruby191 Writing Makefile for Ruby Writing MYMETA.yml

When I run dmake, most of the output seems benign but there are two errors near the end and it does not complete successfully:

What I am wondering, is if this is really just a code issue in the XS module? Does anyone else ever use this, or any brand of "inline ruby" style code? I have looked at the Inline::Ruby module, but it has even more issues with installation than this one does! (and the docs say it has only been tested on linux)

At the end of the day, I'm really just looking for a simple implementation of inline ruby, so if there is a better/easier/different but equal alternative that I am not considering please suggest it!

    GCC apparently changed its standards compliance. To fix this, you'll have to either downgrade GCC or change the C code.

    PS -- If you're an employer who wants to glue Ruby and Perl together and currently pays technojosh, please consider paying me instead.

      If you know how to "glue Ruby and Perl together" please do share. These are two freely available languages, and that is the exact problem I'm trying to solve.

      So far none of the modules I've tried are getting anywhere, most won't even install on Windows.

    • Ruby
    • Inline::Ruby
    • Inline::Interp (this installed ok but I can't seem to get it actually loading Ruby -- this might be its own SoPW very soon)
        Can you program in C? I can. They both have C APIs, so it's easy but annoying to plug them into each other.
