Dear all,

I made a small and dirty pdfTeX expansion: a new primitive
named \calc, which allows to make calculations using Ruby
commands. Example:


Using of TeX-variables is possible too (without their units).


If you want to try it: install Ruby 1.8.x (the C-compiler
will search the Ruby header files in the
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i686-linux-gnu directory) then compile the
patched pdfTeX sources. And enjoy!
