[Ironruby-core] RCov

Just noticed that RCov can work in pure Ruby mode without the C-based core known as “rcovrt”. The pure Ruby mode is two orders of magnitude slower. Just FYI. There is still the issue that it will not profile .NET code…

The core is C-based. Most of it is in Ruby. This is just similar to ruby-debug which also has a small C-based core. Both would need a small hook from IronRuby. So its certainly feasible to support it, but at this point, it will be post-1.0

However, you would only get coverage for Ruby code. For profiling .NET code, you have to use .NET profilers like the one in VS.

I think rcov is c-based ☹

I know everyone is using IronRuby for their testing, but what about code coverage? Has anyone tried RCov with a .NET app?
