Feature #8050

struct stat to VALUE should be accessable from the C-API

Added by Hanmac (Hans Mackowiak) over 7 years ago. Updated almost 7 years ago.

Target version:


filc.c has methods to turn an struct stat into an File::Stat, the problem is that this methods are not accessable from the outside, and cant me mimiced my coping into the c-Ext code.

so it would be good if there where a VALUE rb_stat_new(stuct stat); or something like that for the C-API

Can we also have a way to create a Dir object from a DIR pointer? Something like rb_dir_new(DIR *dir).

Please open separate feature request for DIR * -> Dir
