I googled the internet and didn't find any clear instructions I can follow. Now the v1.8.6 is out and the place I go for ruby document at http://www.ruby-doc.org/core/ does not have the updated API for v1.8.6. I wonder if I can generate the similar document locally with my ruby installation. Can someone give me a clear instruction on how to generate it? For example, if my ruby is installed at c:\ruby (Windows platform), what would be the command to generate the HTML API doc for the core classes? Thanks,

It's even possible that the docs are already generated somewhere... Jano

Why do you say that? As best I can tell, I have the 1.8.6 source docs served as the default core API docs. -- James Britt "Blanket statements are over-rated"

You do but the Rubydoc front page (http://www.ruby-doc.org/) says 1.8.5 is the current release. --Jeremy On 5/9/07, James Britt <email@example.com> wrote: > core API docs. > > > -- > James Britt > > "Blanket statements are over-rated" > > -- http://www.jeremymcanally.com/ My free Ruby e-book: http://www.humblelittlerubybook.com/book/ My blogs: http://www.mrneighborly.com/ http://www.rubyinpractice.com/

Thanks for the help, I've successfully generated the html doc locally with the rDoc tool. As pointed out, I thought the doc at ruby-doc is still 1.8.5 because its front page didn't mention anything about 1.8.6. I am not sure how to verify its version, as the included changelog file with my windows installation didn't say much about the core API changes from 1.8.5 -> 1.8.6. If there is a page that details this core API change that someone know, could you please post it here?
