RDoc is an application that produces documentation for one or more Ruby source
files.  RDoc includes the +rdoc+ and +ri+ tools for generating and displaying
online documentation.

At this point in time, RDoc 2.x is a work in progress and may incur further
API changes beyond what has been made to RDoc 1.0.1.  Command-line tools are
largely unaffected, but internal APIs may shift rapidly.

See RDoc for a description of RDoc's markup and basic use.


  gem 'rdoc'
  require 'rdoc/rdoc'
  # ... see RDoc

RDoc has some subtle bugs processing classes that are split across multiple
files (bugs that may or may not manifest depending on the order in which
the files are encountered).  This issue can be tracked here[].
