I am working on the next release of Narf. This release of narf will
contain a customized version of the ruby interpreter. The Narf
build scripts currently do a fine job of:
using a pre-compiled binary
compiling a new binary
installing this binary next to ruby.
I saw these attributes in the gemspec:
But I wasn't sure if they would fit my needs. Narf.c embeds ruby in a
web-customized executable. That executable is (and must be) a binary.
How would I package the narf interpreter with a gem?
1. You need to get into the interpreter to a.) run as a cgi and b.)
report syntax errors in cgi-scripts to the browser.
