I recently follow the excellent tutorial at the HiveLogic site on
installing Ruby on OS 10.4. http://hivelogic.com/articles/2005/12/01/
My Problem: is with ri and rdoc:
When I first tried running ri, I got an error message saying ri /
rdoc were not installed and to contact the distributor of the binary
used to install ruby or if ruby had been manually installed, to run
make again with directives to install rdoc. I did the latter. Now
when I run ri, I get this error:
Before using ri, you need to generate documentation
using ‘rdoc’ with the --ri option
I’ve tried running rdoc with any and all options. The result is a
long wait followed by an error stating rdoc doesn’t know what to do
with some random file nested deep inside one of the other apps on my
system ( Flash, TextWrangler, Toast ???).
ri, rdoc, ruby, are all installed in /usr/local/bin
How do I run rdoc so that is doesn’t choke on non ruby files?
Many thanks for any help. I’m sure I’m just missing something simple.
