De primero, why the heck is it so horribly slow? If I (horrors) perldoc
a module into HTML, redirect to file and open in a browser, it’s instant
… even though I get all the docs for the module with all the methods
etc. If I “ri” a class I wait five seconds to get the intro and the list
of constants, properties, methods and includes. Is it a problem with the
install (InstantRails 1.6) or is that to be expected?
De segundo, is there a way to tell ri to generate a single file
containing the intro, the lists and the descriptions of the individual
methods for a class? Preferably interlinked? It’s a bit annoying to have
to type ri Some.Class, wait five seconds, find the method I’m interested
in, switch back to the shell, bring up last submitted command, append a
dot and the method name, submit and wait another five seconds for the
two lines of documentation about the method.
I’m probably asking for something I’m not supposed to want.
