Facter Publisher's description
from Luke Kanies
A cross-platform Ruby library for retrieving facts from operating systems
Facter is a cross-platform Ruby library for retrieving facts from operating systems. Supports multiple resolution mechanisms, any of which can be restricted to working only on certain operating systems or environments.
Facter is especially useful for retrieving things like operating system names, IP addresses, MAC addresses, and SSH keys.
It is easy to extend Facter to include your own custom facts or to include additional mechanisms for retrieving facts.
Run 'ruby install.rb' or use one of the distributed gem files at http://reductivelabs.com/downloads/gems .
install.rb should successfully install; let me know if it doesn't.
Otherwise, you can just set RUBYLIB to contain its lib directory, or copy the libs into your main ruby library directory.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
