sorry for my duplicated posts. My ie seems crazy, it automatically post twice.

In my experience it's not as comprehensive as with e.g. Java, partly because Ruby is very dynamic so the information simply isn't available until runtime. I've found that there's not really much reason to have it pop up automatically but on the whole I think it's a worthwhile trade for the flexibility you get from Ruby ;) It does do variables quite well I think - hit CTRL-SPACE to see what it knows about. It only knows about variables in the current script (?). I only switched to IDEs about a year ago, and when I started with Ruby I found it hard without autocomplete, which frankly isn't a place I want to be. Doesn't take long to get back to normal, though ;) (Aside, I don't know if you can get docs working, my Ri is broken I think, but to be honest I don't think you'll need to - if you're not sure of the name of a method or whatever just guess - most times you'll be right, Ruby is very nice in this respect :))

You aren't posting twice to the list, you are just seeing Gmail put in the same thread both your response from your "Sent Mail" and the response as shown on the list. It is just one of those annoying features of Gmail. Ryan

Thank you. I do find some varibale hits this time. I'm very new to ruby. So I never tried the rdoc stuff. Can you tell me how to use it please? Thanks again~

Yes, it's really annoying. I tried to find out how to disable this but I didn't get any clues.

OK, I tried the ri again, it works for me.
