Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.


See LICENSE for details.


Originally written by TJ Holowaychuk, but I (John Nunemaker) will be maintaining this fork of it for the forseeable future.

Verified Ruby Versions

  • REE 1.8.7

  • MRI 1.9.2

Should work on all, but these are the ones I will for sure be checking against.
