[ANN] rcodetools 0.7.0 (TDC: "test-driven, 100% accurate completion", automagic assertions/specs, doc/code navigation...)

rcodetools is a collection of Ruby code manipulation tools. It includes
xmpfilter and editor-independent Ruby development helper tools, as well as
emacs and vim interfaces.

Currently, rcodetools comprises:
* xmpfilter: automagic Test::Unit assertions/RSpec expectations and code
* rct-complete: 100% accurate (editor-independent) code completion
* rct-doc: document browsing and code navigator
* rct-meth-args: precise method info (meta-programming aware) and TAGS
* rct-fork: pre-load heavy library(Rails etc) and speed up
rct-complete/rct-doc (server)
* rct-fork-client: run Ruby programs from the current state of the rct-fork server
* ruby-toggle-file: toggle implementation file and test file
* rbtest: embedded Test::Unit for small scripts

rcodetools includes and supersedes xmpfilter, which has been much improved and
extended by rubikitch, ultimately resulting in the rct-* tools, which are
almost entirely his work.

See for further information and for the

What's new
User-visible changes since 0.5.0
* "test-driven completion" (TDC) support for Emacs and vim (see README.TDC)
* --test (-t), --filename options for rct-complete and rct-doc, allowing to
specify the test to be run for 100% accurate completion/documentation in the
corresponding implementation
* ruby-toggle-file: finds the test file corresponding to a given
implementation and vice versa
* rct-fork, rct-fork-client: allow to eliminate the overhead due to library
loading (esp. useful for Rails)
* rbtest: executes unit tests in a single Ruby script
* --fork, --rbtest, --detect-rbtest supported by several commands
* xmpfilter's --spec now autodetects the RSpec version and generates
specifications with the appropriate syntax

rcodetools can be installed with RubyGems:

gem install rcodetools

If you try this shortly after a release and you get an old version/a 404
error, please allow some time until the packages propagate to RubyForge's

rcodetools is available in tarball format. rcodetools' executables will run
faster when installed this way, since RubyGems add a noticeable overhead.

rcodetools can be used with any editor, but the distribution includes emacs
and vim interfaces (contributions for other editors are welcome); see
README.emacs and README.vim in the sources for more information.
