Is that perhaps already in the product and I’ve missed it?

You can use Search->Lookup selection, but it’s nothing more than an
automatic cross-project grep.
While it is a very nice feature, I agree, Arachno Ruby definitely
needs more Ruby smarts and the ability to jump instantly to a
method/class definition.

This isn’t a ArachnoRuby thing persay, but it applies to any up and
coming ruby IDE… how would
you as the user expect the IDE to take you to a class definition, if the
class itself is
defined/opened in multiple files?

Good question!

Why not show all the code snippets, that defines the class?

The Zeus for Windows IDE handles this case by displaying dialog
box containing a list of the files and letting the user decide.

Zeus automatically manages the ctags information for all files
contained in the currently open workspace and it this information
that it uses for things like tag search, class browsing and
intellisensing.
