#1110 Strange behaviour on method names containing underscores (_)

ruby (61)

I have a class which contains a method whose name is "somethingCool_Fast". The generated Ruby interface, however, doesn't have a method named "somethingCool_Fast". Instead, the method name is "somethingFast" there, i.e. the part "Cool_" of the name is missing. This issue appears in SWIG-2.0.0 as well as SWIG-2.0.1.

    I tried this:

    %module example

    %inline %{
    class Tst {
    int somethingCool_Fast(int i) { return i*2; }

    require 'example'
    c = Example::Tst.new()
    print "result = ", c.somethingCool_Fast(22), "\n"

    which works as expected. Probably you have something else in your code changing the name... a macro or %rename perhaps? Closing, please open if you can recreate with an example.
