Re: Are Ruby bindings alive or dead?

Hi,

I'm happy to help, however I found SWIG very hard to figure out.

I have had some luck using the Ruby/DL stuff though, I have made a small
wrapper that wraps the status command using the DL methods, however even
though it was easier to do than figuring out SWIG, it would be tedious
to expose all the API's that way, especially as the SWIG bindings are
still being worked on, and much further along.

I'll post the work I have done so far for interest, especially as the DL
stuff is still not well documented.
