Ruby (Rdoc) documentation http://www.ruby-doc.org/core/

Team,

Is the information found on http://www.ruby-doc.org/core/ up to date?
If
so, is there a way to download it so it could be used off-line?

Thank you

Victor

It’s easy:

  • go to your ruby source dir, (c:\ruby\src\ruby-X.X.X-pX for Windows),
  • run rdoc -o ,
  • PROFIT! (more precisely, you have a copy of ruby-doc/core in
    for your exact version of ruby)

is any dir where you want to place the generated docs. You have
to specify one, because
default for rdoc (‘doc’) clashes with ruby’s doc dir.

You may want to ‘gem install rdoc’ before this, eric recently reworked
rdoc.

Thank you!

Victor

Anybody know where this is in Ubuntu?. I’m being very dense this week,
but I can’t find it. Maybe I’m missing a package with the sources, but
I can’t find that either.

Thanks,

Jesus.

Actually, you’ll need something called ruby-src from Ubuntu compatible
repositories that provide .deb packaged source files, since the headers

The easiest way to get the sources is probably downloading them from
ruby-lang.org, extracting them, and let RDoc loose on the source code,
with the -o option. (No messing around with apt-get’s repository
configuration, for example, and you know where you extracted the
sources, too. :P)

It might not be anywhere. (It isn’t anywhere on my Mac OS X machine.)
Just download the source code from

http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/

Unzip / untar it, cd into it, and run rdoc against it. Be patient, as
rdoc parses all sources before writing anything, and then during the
last phase (HTML generation) provides no feedback. Good time to get a
cup of coffee. Mmmmm… coffee… m.

Thanks Philip and Matt. I’ll do that just downloading the sources
myself.

(N.B.: Canonical = Mark Shuttleworth’s corporation running the Ubuntu
business)
