How to Generate a DSA signature?

I'm using Sparkle in my Application to do updates but in the documentation it says to generate a DSA Signature and provides a tool to do is (the tool is coded in ruby) but i don't know how to use it. Can someone help?

This is where the documentation is (Step 3): http://sparkle.andymatuschak.org/documentation/pmwiki.php/Documentation/BasicSetup?from=Main.HomePage

Answer

Google'd the command string, and got a handful of hits.

Quoting the author:

It's a script; you need to run it from the command line.

Open the terminal. Change into the Sparkle distribution directory. Type:

ruby "Extras/Signing Tools/generate_keys.rb"

Follow the instructions on the wiki from there.
