==(other)

Is otherequal to this platform? Two platforms are equal if they have the same CPU, OS and version.

Also aliased as: eql?
# File lib/rubygems/platform.rb, line 120
def ==(other)
  self.class === other and to_a == other.to_a
end
===(other)

Does othermatch this platform? Two platforms match if they have the same CPU, or either has a CPU of 'universal', they have the same OS, and they have the same version, or either has no version.

# File lib/rubygems/platform.rb, line 135
def ===(other)
  return nil unless Gem::Platform === other

  # cpu
  (@cpu == 'universal' or other.cpu == 'universal' or @cpu == other.cpu) and

  # os
  @os == other.os and

  # version
  (@version.nil? or other.version.nil? or @version == other.version)

Does othermatch this platform? If otheris a String it will be converted to a Gem::Platform first. See #=== for matching rules.
