Hey Guys,

Anyone know how I can determine the name of the host operating system
from within Ruby?

Sure:

RUBY_PLATFORM
=> “i686-darwin8.8.1”

require “rbconfig”
=> false

Config::CONFIG[“target”]
=> “i686-apple-darwin8.8.1”

Config::CONFIG[“arch”]
=> “i686-darwin8.8.1”

Config::CONFIG[“target_os”]
=> “darwin8.8.1”

Hope that helps.
