From Open Babel
Jump to: navigation, search

Starting with Open Babel 2.1, an experimental Ruby interface to the Open Babel library is available.

Compilation

The Ruby interface is auto-generated, including a Makefile which uses extconf.rb.

To generate the Makefile:

% ruby extconf.rb --with-openbabel-include=/usr/local/include/openbabel-2.0
% make

Running

The Ruby interface can be run via ruby or interactive use via irb

% irb
require 'openbabel'
