in thread trouble installing CPAN module "Ruby"

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.
        You are teasing me to death here!

        Truth be told, I'm not very good with C. Trying to resolve the issues with those modules I've mentioned found me way over my head. How easy but annoying is this effort?

    [Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
    [ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
    [Corion]: ambrus: Oh - that one would be much harder to automate... The SYNOPSIS section should mostly be a runnable program IMO, but I write only small snippets in my documentation for single functions/methods, and creating the appropriate environment for ...
    [Corion]: ... those in an automated fashion seems somewhat hard to me. Although it should do wonders for the test coverage ;)
    [haukex]: Corion: I once wrote an automated thingy for that here
