Hi all,

Does the XMLRPC::Server class from Ruby's xmlrpc lib automatically
provide a method to list all available methods being served?  Or do I
have to roll that myself?

Thanks,

Dan

It does include it, but the xmlrpc documentation makes it difficult to
find. It's hidden in the `BasicServer` class. The method is called
`addIntrospection`:

http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/xmlrpc/rdoc/...

It adds:
  * `system.listMethods`
  * `system.methodSignature`
  * `system.methodHelp`

which are the defacto xmlrpc standard for introspection.
