  rvm [Flags] [Options] Action [Implementation[,Implementation[,...]]

Flags

  --head - with update, updates rvm to git head version.
  --rubygems - with update, updates rubygems for selected ruby
  --default - with 'rvm use X', sets the default ruby for new shells to X.
  --debug - Toggle debug mode on for very verbose output.
  --trace - Toggle trace mode on to see EVERYTHING rvm is doing.
  --force - Force install, removes old install & source before install.
  --summary - Used with rubydo to print out a summary of the commands run.
  --latest - with gemset --dump skips version strings for latest gem.
  --gems - with uninstall/remove removes gems with the interpreter.
  --docs - with install, attempt to generate ri after installation.
  --reconfigure - Force ./configure on install even if Makefile already exists.

Options

  -v|--version - Emit rvm version loaded for current shell
  -l|--level - patch level to use with rvm use / install
     --prefix - path for all rvm files (~/.rvm/), with trailing slash!
     --bin - path for binaries to be placed (~/.rvm/bin/)
  -S - Specify a script file to attempt to load and run (rubydo)
  -e - Execute code from the command line.
  --gems - Used to set the 'gems_flag', use with 'remove' to remove gems
  --archive - Used to set the 'archive_flag', use with 'remove' to remove archive
  --patch - With MRI Rubies you may specify one or more full paths to patches
                    for multiple, specify comma separated:
                    --patch /.../.../a.patch[%prefix],/.../.../.../b.patch
                    'prefix' is an optional argument, which will be bypassed
                    to the '-p' argument of the 'patch' command. It is separated
                    from patch file name with '%' symbol.
  -C|--configure - custom configure options. If you need to pass several configure
                    options then append them comma separated: -C --...,--...,--...
  --nice - process niceness (for slow computers, default 0)
  --ree-options - Options passed directly to ree's './installer' on the command line.
  --with-rubies - Specifies a string for rvm to attempt to expand for set operations.

               This does not touch your profiles, which is why
               there is an if around the sourcing scripts/rvm.
  update - upgrades rvm to the latest version.

               migrating your gemsets semi-automatically.
