This is a wrapper module of Shapefile C Library for Ruby.

How to install
==============

* You must have ShapeLib and ruby.
* It is expected to run on all ruby-running environments. But it is tested
  only on RedHat Enterprise Linux 4.0 and Vine Linux 3.0.

Quick directions
----------------

    $ tar xvfz ruby-shapelib.tar.gz      (you did it if you see this file)
    $ cd ruby-shapelib
    $ ruby ./extconf.rb
    $ make 
    # make install

Troubleshooting
---------------

* I have ruby but can't run extconf.rb
  
  Some Linux distributions divide Ruby into several packages such as
  "ruby" and "ruby-devel". You may have to install additional packages.

* I have shapelib installed but extconf.rb fails

  Try --with-shapelib-include= and --with-shapelib-lib= options of extconf.rb.

If above advice doesn't help, please visit
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ruby-shapelib and post a message.
