I like fxri but why is it that some very essential libraries, e.g. the socket library (with classes TCPSocket, TCPServer, etc.), are not included? It is sad that fxri is so crippled. I have to grab the PickAxe2 book all the time.

Hello: Fxri is based on ri. Ri by default only contains documentation on the core library. TCPSocket and the like are included in the standard library, not the core library. I'm not sure how to have ri see the standard library. However, I think that is the main issue. -Ted PS: This distinction can be seen at http://www.ruby-doc.org

I've just found out that the online "Ruby Standard Library Documentation" at http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/ includes the socket library, so I don't have to refer to PickAxe2 if I didn't want to (and if I'm connected).

That page should also have a link for downloading a tarball or zip file of the std-lib rdocs. You can read them 24-hours a day!
