28== What is Rake
29
30Rake is a build tool similar to the make program in many ways. But
31instead of cryptic make recipes, Rake uses standard Ruby code to
32declare tasks and dependencies. You have the full power of a modern
33scripting language built right into your build tool.
34
35== Availability

37The easiest way to get and install rake is via RubyGems ...
