Checking for gems that need to be updated


#1

Is there an easy way to list which installed gems are out of date?
Basically it would look at the local gems, compare them to the latest
remote versions, and just show me if there’s a newer version
available.

Why not just do

gem update

Pat, I once wrote a little script to do just this. If you’re not on
Windows, I think you’ll have to change the way I call the gem command.
