The current version looks like this:


ruby-wmi by Gordon Thiesfeld == DESCRIPTION: ruby-wmi is an ActiveRecord style interface for Microsoft's Windows Management Instrumentation provider. Many of the methods in WMI::Base are borrowed directly, or with some modification from ActiveRecord. The major tool in this library is the #find method. For more information, see WMI::Base. There is also a WMI.sublasses method included for reflection. == SYNOPSIS: # The following code sample kills all processes of a given name # (in this case, Notepad), except the oldest. require 'ruby-wmi' procs = WMI::Win32_Process.find(:all, :conditions => { :name => 'Notepad.exe' } ) morituri = procs.sort_by{|p| p.CreationDate } #those who are about to die morituri.shift morituri.each{|p| p.terminate } == REQUIREMENTS: Windows 2000 or newer Ruby 1.8 == INSTALL: gem install ruby-wmi == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2007 Gordon Thiesfeld Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.

Any way to fix the description of this? (It's a fork of ruby-wmi, as the name suggests.)
