As installed on Debian 7.3, ri is useless, even with running rdoc in /usr/lib/ruby. Following a recomendation found online I installed the source tree and ran rdoc over that using this command:
mike@/deb73:~/tmp/ruby-1.9.3-p551> rdoc -a -w4 -t’Ruby_1.9.3’
-op /mc/docs/computer/programming/ruby/rdoc/ ./*
When I tried the ‘-r’ switch rdoc said html was already selected and did nothing but after running I can’t find any html docs.
ri Array gives me this:
= Array < Object
= Instance methods:
abbrev, dclone, pretty_print, pretty_print_cycle, shelljoin, to_csv,
which is basically useless.
I know there is lots of docs online and have been DLing and using them but surely there is equivalent docs already on my drive if only I knew hao to access it, or am I just spoiled by what’s available with Perl?
Thanks for pointers,
I have no idea why the first portion of this post is in bold, apologies.
