- Ruby >= 1.9
In addition to the standard Ruby interpreter (MRI), Whois has been successfully tested against several Ruby implementations.
- Whois >= 3.0 requires Ruby 1.9.2 or newer.
- Whois >= 1.5 requires Ruby 1.8.7 or newer.
- For older versions of Ruby, see the CHANGELOG.md file.
The best way to install Whois is via RubyGems.
$ gem install whois
You might need administrator privileges on your system to install the Gem.
The Whois repository is hosted on GitHub. You can start by watching or cloning the repository.
$ git clone git://github.com/weppos/whois $ cd whois
Use Bundler to install the development dependencies.
Now run the tests to make sure everything is working as expected.
$ rake test
