Hello again,

Where are the HTML based Rails docs? My OS X Tiger Unix prompt tells
me that Rails is installed under:


but I can't find any of the docs anywhere?

Sincere regards,

The docs are actually in /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/docs, but you'll
probably want to serve them up locally using the 'gem_server' command.

Typically in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/doc/*.  Also online at http://

	Also a great way to see the installed docs for gems that you have
installed is to run this command:

$ gem_server

	That will start a webrick server on port 8808 so after you run that
command go to your web browser and go to this address:


	All of your gems that have docs will be listed and browseable right
there for you.

If you are on OSX/Tiger, the rdoc widget is quite convenient ...
