Here is a more detailed description of what is wrong with rdoc I'm trying to build ruby from source using the stable-snapshot from here: ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/stable-snapshot.tar.gz Building on a winXP box using mingw/msys Ruby builds just fine, everything seems to work afaik. To configure and build I used the following: ./configure --prefix=C:\ruby --enable-shared (fine) make (fine) make install (fine) make install-doc (broken!) Generating RDoc documentation ./miniruby.exe ./runruby.rb --extout=.ext -- "./bin/rdoc" --all --ri --op "C:/test_ruby/share/ri/1.8/system" "." c:/ruby/build/ruby/lib/tracer.rb:27:in `(null)': undefined method `' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError) from c:/ruby/build/ruby/lib/rdoc/parsers/parse_rb.rb:16:in `(null)' from c:/ruby/build/ruby/lib/rdoc/rdoc.rb:8:in `(null)' from ./bin/rdoc:59 make: *** [do-install-doc] Error 1 Seems like this is a window issue and perhaps there are somethings in the wrong places here are the relevant lines from the files mentioned in the output. *Here is line 59 of ./bin/rdoc require 'rdoc/rdoc' *Here is line 8 of c:/ruby/build/ruby/lib/rdoc/rdoc.rb require 'rdoc/parsers/parse_rb.rb' *Here is line 16 of c:/ruby/build/ruby/lib/rdoc/parsers/parse_rb.rb require "tracer" *Here is line 27 from c:/ruby/build/ruby/lib/tracer.rb MY_FILE_NAME = caller(0).scan(/^(.*):[0-9]+$/) Can anyone make heads or tails of whats wrong with my setup? Thank you!
