This is a Ruby text expansion program for Linux - it will type text for you. It uses 'snippits', small text files with a simple syntax to determine what to type. However, snippits can be very powerful, since they can contain embedded Ruby, special keys (Control, Shift, Up, etc), and can contain a cursor placement instructions. == REQUIREMENTS: * eRB 'sudo apt-get install ruby1.8' on Debian/Ubuntu-like * xte from the xautomation suite 'sudo apt-get install xautomation' on Debian/Ubuntu-like * ASpell and RASpell is not required, but adds extra features: 'sudo apt-get install aspell-en' and 'sudo gem install raspell' Please consult your distribution documentation on how to install Ruby, Rubygems, eRB, and ASpell. To install all required software on a Debian or Ubuntu install, execute: * sudo apt-get install ruby ruby1.8-dev rdoc rubygems libruby-extras * sudo gem install raspell
