There is built-in help: just type ri methodname at the shell prompt, or
within irb try

irb_help “methodname”

(with the quotes)

For something to browse, try
http://www.ruby-doc.org/docs/ProgrammingRuby/

in particular select the sections “Built-in Classes and Methods”, and
“Standard Library”. This version of the book is quite old and is for
ruby 1.6, but that just means you’re missing some new classes and
methods. The second edition (for ruby 1.8) and third edition (for ruby
1.9) are available to buy as either PDF or paper books from
