Kernel#select docs broken?

I’m trying to find out how to use Kernel#select or IO#select.
Unfortunately, the online docs aren’t very helpful. The entry for
IO#select tells me to see Kernel#select, which links to the same spot.

The old Pickaxe is a bit better…

The only thing I’d add to that is the things in the lists don’t have
to be IO objects, they just need a #to_io method which returns an IO
object.
