DESCRIPTION:

ruby-wmi is an ActiveRecord style interface for Microsoft's Windows
Management Instrumentation provider.

Many of the methods in WMI::Base are borrowed directly, or with some
modification from ActiveRecord.
  http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/Base.html

The major tool in this library is the #find method.  For more
information, see WMI::Base.

There is also a WMI.sublasses method included for reflection.

SYNOPSIS:

# The following code sample kills all processes of a given name
# (in this case, Notepad), except the oldest.

  require 'ruby-wmi'

  procs = WMI::Win32_Process.find(:all,
                                  :conditions => { :name => 'Notepad.exe' }
                                 )
  morituri = procs.sort_by{|p| p.CreationDate } #those who are about to die
  morituri.shift
  morituri.each{|p| p.terminate }
