#library_name(name, abi_number) ⇒ Object

Generate a library name for ffi.

Platform notes: linux: Some distros allow "libvips.so", but only if the -dev headers have been installed. To work everywhere, you must include the ABI number. Confusingly, the file extension is not at the end. ffi adds the "lib" prefix. mac: As linux, but the extension is at the end and is added by ffi. windows: The ABI number must be included, but with a hyphen. ffi does not add a "lib" prefix or a ".dll" suffix.
