I’m fairly new to Ruby and I’m trying to generate a local copy of the
docs for the core and standard API, as shown online at
I ran rdoc in my ruby installation directory (/usr/lib/ruby) but it ate
all my memory so I had to kill it.
Next, I ran rdoc in /usr/lib/ruby/1.8, which worked but produced
documentation that doesn’t contain details of certain parts of the
language. For example, searching for “kind_of” reveals that the
assert_kind_of (Test::Unit::Assertions) method is documented, but the
kind_of? (Object) method isn’t.
How can I generate local documentation?
P.S. Note that I installed ruby with a doc use flag, so ri works
properly, but I couldn’t find any html documentation on my system.
