RI does not produce useful output.

>ri Kernel.format
More than one method matched your request. You can refine
your search by asking for information on one of:

     Kernel#format, Kernel#format

>ri --version
ri v1.0.1 - 20041108

>ruby --version
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32]

FXRI isn't any better of course.  Clicking on something in the left
column just pastes it
into the irb window.  There is no help.

You should say 'ri Kernel#format' instead of 'ri Kernel.format'.
Also, keep in mind that you should run 'make doc_install' when
you manually build ruby.
