   1. Prerequisites (platform independent)

      BeEF requires ruby 1.9 and the "bundler" gem. Bundler can be installed by:

      gem install bundler

   2. Prerequisites (Windows)
      Windows requires the sqlite.dll.  Simply grab the zip file below and extract it to your Ruby bin directory:

   3. Prerequisites (Linux)

      !!! This must be done PRIOR to running the bundle install command !!!
      On linux you will need to find the packages specific to your distribution for sqlite.  An example for Ubuntu systems is:

      3.0. sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 sqlite3-doc
      3.1. install rvm from, this takes care of the various incompatable and conflicting ruby packages that are required
      3.2. rvm install 1.9.2
      3.3. rvm use 1.9.2
   4. Prerequisites (Mac OSX)
      - XCode: provides the sqlite support BeEF needs
      - Ruby 1.9
      	To install RVM and Ruby 1.9.3 on Mac OS:  
      	$ bash -s stable < <(curl -s source ~/.bash_profile 
      	$ rvm install 1.9.3-p0 --with-gcc=clang
		$ rvm use 1.9.3

   5. Install instructions
      Obtain application code either by downloading an archive from or cloning the GIT repo

	  Navigate to the ruby source directory and run:

	  bundle install

      Bundler installs all the pre-requisite gems.

   6. Run instructions

      Simply run:
