A small hodgepodge of neat little UNIX API things I like to have access to without shelling out.
* getloadavg returns a 3-element tuple with your 1, 5, and 15 minute load averages.
* gethostname returns your hostname.
* getifaddrs returns a data structure with the ipv4 and ipv6 addresses bound to each of your interfaces, including netmask and broadcast information.
Something recognizably unix-compatible, a compiler and macro preprocessor, ruby.
* gem install unixinfo
After checking out the source, run:
$ rake newb
This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs,
and generate the RDoc.
