23 December 2005 — A plea for documentation — 1-minute read

Would some kind soul please please please document mkmf.rb? I hate that library because it is so impossible to figure out how to use it.

Why bother using mkmf.rb? RubyInline probably does what you need without any pain.
Upon looking at the docs, it appears that RubyInline probably would be sufficient for most of what I need. Thanks for forcing me to take a closer look at it, Eric. Still, mkmf _ought_ to be documented, if it's in the stdlib.
