== Introduction ==

RubyOSA is a bridge that connects Ruby to the Apple Event Manager 
It automatically populates the API (classes, methods, constants) according 
to the target application's scriptable definition.

RubyOSA is an alternative to RubyAEOSA, and meant to replace it.

RubyOSA is licensied under a BSD license, see the COPYRIGHT file for more 

More information on the project home page:

== Requirements ==

Mac OS X 10.4.X or greater
ruby 1.8.X or greater
libxml-ruby 0.3.8 or greater

== Get started ==

$ ruby extconf.rb
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ sudo make install-extras

`make install' will only install the core of the bridge, while 
`make install-extras' will install some additional tools such as the rdoc-osa

== Support ==

A tutorial is available online at

Sample code is available in the `sample' sub-directory.

The rdoc-osa tool can be used to generate API reference documentation
for the given application. See its --help flag for more information
