if a newbie wanted to find the compare operators what would the steps
be or is it norm to google for 2 hours to find the simplest of things.

I mostly rely on http://www.gotapi.com/, which has a nice search
function and includes both Rubys and Rails’ API (and HTML, and …);
other than that I can only whole-heartedly recommend the pickaxe book
(http://pragprog.com/titles/ruby3) as a PDF.

I would too, especially to get yourself off the ground enough to
become self-sufficient. It’s always going to be hard to search for
<=>, especially if you don’t know it exists. API documentation is fine
once you’ve got off the ground, but by its very nature is going to be
skimpy on the conceptual stuff.

Try the ri-command.
E.g. “ri ‘<=>’”, “ri Fixnum#’<=>’”, etc.

fastri-gem is also recommendable.
