class Gem::Uninstaller

An Uninstaller.

The uninstaller fires pre and post uninstall hooks. Hooks can be added either through a rubygems_plugin.rb file in an installed gem or via a rubygems/defaults/#{RUBY_ENGINE}.rb or rubygems/defaults/operating_system.rb file. See Gem.pre_uninstall and Gem.post_uninstall for details.

Attributes

bin_dir[R]

The directory a gem's executables will be installed into

gem_home[R]

The gem repository the gem will be installed into

spec[R]

The Gem::Specification for the gem being uninstalled, only set during uninstall_gem
