I'm new to Gdal ruby binding and playing with it. I tried to write
reading part of Gdal tutorial's example in ruby(please see attached file).
As writing ruby's tutorial, I found two questions(problems?).
1. No way for releasing dataset?
When using C++ or C, we can release dataset easily by calling destructor
or GdalClose(). In ruby binding, is there a way to release dataset
expect for exiting script?
2. variable aruguments
Some method has variable arguments example for Gdal::Gdal::Band#read_raster,
I think. But I can't pass optional arguments at all. I called read_raster
like python's example.
band.read_raster(0, 0, band.xsize(), 1, band.xsize(), 1)
But I got following error.
in `read_raster': in method 'ReadRaster', argument 8 of type 'int *' (TypeError)
My syntax is wrong? or gdal/ruby's issue?
Now I'm using cvs snapshot(2006-02-18). If newer version has some improvement
or modification, I'll try it.
