You don’t even need to ‘tweak RDoc,’ as it happens. Having gotten
somewhat exasperated with the current default of little frames across
the top with teensy scroll bars, I was delighted to discover that it’s
simply a default template. Dig down to
[/usr/local/lib]/ruby/1.8/rdoc/generators/template/html and discover
not only the default ‘jamis.rb’ template but a number of alternatives
lurking therin. (Replace /usr/local/lib with your ruby root
directory as appropriate. If somebody’s reading this who isn’t sure
where it is, try “whereis ruby”, then change the “bin” at the end of
the answer to “lib” and carry on from there. If that doesn’t work, um,
ask somebody who isn’t me.
My personal revised template still has frames, but now they’re down the
left side, so I can see more lines at the same time. I’m sure an
unframed version wouldn’t be rocket science; seems pretty likely that
at least one of the alternative templates does exactly that already.
