What is it?

Ruby-HL7 is a library for parsing and generating HL7 2.x messages. HL7
3.0 message support is planned for a future release. HL7 is a widely
used medical information interchange format.

Feature list:
* flexible parsing support
* MLLP support
* provides a simple dsl for defining segments
* allows for arbitrary manipulation of segment data
* automatic segment ordering (via sort)
* familiar Array/Enumerable semantics
* easy associated/child segment access


This release addresses a few bugs found with segment access,
specifically null segment access and empty segment access.
It also provides a speed improvement when parsing messages with many
unimplemented/unknown segments.
Associated/Child segment access has been implemented.

How do I get it?

gem install ruby-hl7

or grab the tarbal from

More info and examples

What else?

Please use the trac instance for bug reports and feature requests. Xml
message support will be added once I've released my fastxml library.
