Sys-proctable 0.8.0

Hi everyone,

I’m happy to announce the release of sys-proctable 0.8.0.

The sys-proctable library is a Ruby interface for getting at process
table information.

There are a lot of changes, but here are the highlights:

  • The Linux and Solaris versions are now pure Ruby.
  • The Solaris version now only supports 2.8 and later.
  • Bug fixes all around ranging from bad struct members to dealing with
    spaces properly.
  • Some ProcessTableStruct members have changed.

See the CHANGES file for all the gory details.

To install the latest version, use “gem install sys-proctable”. Note
that some platforms may explicitly require the “–platform=” option.

You can also get the source from the RubyForge project page at *



  • The tarballs I originally uploaded still contained a bug in Linux.
    If you downloaded the tarball prior to today, please download the
    version that is now on RubyForge. The gems are fine, however.
