The 1.0.1 release of ruby-growl allows ruby-growl to work on Tiger's
Ruby 1.8.2.

Special thanks to Aslak Hellesoy for pointing out the problem and
Daniel B. for informing me that Array#pack is broken on Tiger.

ruby-growl is a UDP notification tool for Growl.

What is Growl?

Growl is a global notification system for Mac OS X. Applications can
register messages which Growl displays on the screen in a variety of
ways depending upon your preferences.

Why ruby-growl?

Growl's existing Ruby bindings only work on Macs, and I wanted my non-
Mac machines to be able to send Growl notifications. I peeked inside
Growl's remote-notification capabilities and wrote up some code that
uses UDP to send Growl notifications across the network.

For more information, see:

To install:

gem install ruby-growl

Or you can fetch the gem (or source .tgz) from RubyForge:
