yarv and C

    I have a somewhat large library written in C that I want to be able to
    call from ruby and I have used SWIG in the past. Right now if I did
    this with swig it would take me several
    days, and I don't want to risk this becoming obsolete in 3 months.

    Am I right that yarv is the future? Can SWIG be used with yarv or
    would it
    be better for me to build my library into yarv? (modify the language)

    I don't want to have to write new glue code when the next release of
    ruby (or yarv) is out.

    Any opinions or pointers are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tom
