An extension library to use Thomas Boutell's gd graphics library from
Ruby.  You can create PNG, GIF or JPEG images with your Ruby script.

Ruby/GD requires gd library with PNG support(i.e. the version 1.6 or
later). See 'doc/INSTALL.en' for detail.

The latest version is available from:
http://kirara.prec.kyoto-u.ac.jp/~tam/GD/

Ruby/GD is formerly known as "GD", originally written and maintained
by Yukihiro "matz" Matsumoto (matz@ruby-lang.org). From this release
of 0.7.0, Ruby/GD is maintained by Ryuichi Tamura (tam@kais.kyoto-u.ac.jp).
