i tried unsuccessfuly to use functions like  
"AXUIElementCopyAttributeValue" from the Accessibility API.

> /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/‍ 
> Frameworks/HIServices.framework/

If I include "framework 'ApplicationServices' it seems, that I have no  
access to these functions.
I read http://www.macruby.org/trac/wiki/MacRubyTutorial and stumbeld  
upon Accessing Static APIs and some thing called gen_bridge_metadata.  
My efforts with this tool resulted in some compiler errors.
Third option would be to make some Obj-C wrapper.

Which is the right way to go?
