Hi, could someone tell me how to list and update the currently
installed gems on my rails installation?

Thanks in advance,

If you’ll run gem_server and then point you browser to
http://localhost:8808 you’ll see a list of your installed gems.

I use

c:>gem list

to see the list. I believe

c:>gem update --include-dependencies

will update all your gems and all of their dependencies. I usually
update one gem at a time, for example:

c:>gem update rake --include-dependencies

but according to the help (gem update --help) it seems to imply that all
gems will be updated if you don’t specify a particular gem.

Hi, how does one know when update a gem? Is it a blog that one can
reference to tell them to update Rails gems?

Thanks in advance,

Conrad-

This command will list all your currently installed gems:

$ gem list

And this one will list all the gems available from rubyforge:

$ gem list --remote

And to update all your installed gems:

$ sudo gem update

Also this is your friend:

$ gem help
