Jim,

Thanks for the reply.

I haven't really browsed the code but there must be a method that gets an
array of the gems that need to be updated.
Can we have an option or command to just list these gems that need updating.

gem outdated  => [gem1,gem2,gem3,ferret]

gem update gem1 gem2 gem3

Thanks

dom
