Creating an Extension

Having written the source code for an extension, we now need to compile it so Ruby can use it. We can either do this as a shared object, which is dynamically loaded at runtime, or statically link the extension into the main Ruby interpreter itself. The basic procedure is the same:
  • Create the C source code file(s) in a given directory.
  • Create extconf.rb.
  • Run extconf.rb to create a Makefile for the C files in this directory.
  • Run make.
  • Run make install.
