This package contains Rake, a simple ruby build program with capabilities similar to make.

Rake has the following features:

* Rakefiles (rake’s version of Makefiles) are completely defined in standard Ruby syntax. No XML files to edit. No quirky Makefile syntax to worry about (is that a tab or a space?)

* Users can specify tasks with prerequisites.

* Rake supports rule patterns to sythesize implicit tasks.

* Rake is lightweight. It can be distributed with other projects as a single file. Projects that depend upon rake do not require that rake be installed on target systems.

* The Rake task library can simplify common actions.

* Rake can be installed as a Ruby GEM
