Feature #8077

Returning Dir objects from C extensions

Added by andrenth (Andre Nathan) almost 8 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Target version:


In 1.8 it was possible to return Dir objects from C extensions by mimicking the code in dir.c and using Data_Wrap_Struct(rb_cDir, dir_mark, dir_free, dirp). This doesn't work in 1.9+, so it would be nice to have the Dir methods exposed to C extensions. For example, something like "VALUE rb_dir_new(DIR *)".

For what purpose?

The code I'm working with is wrapping the fdopendir(3) function (return a DIR* from a file descriptor). This is currently not possible except in ruby 1.8.

Any chance of this going ahead?
