RDoc produces HTML and command-line documentation for Ruby projects.  RDoc
includes the +rdoc+ and +ri+ tools for generating and displaying online

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


To learn RDoc's syntax and directives for documenting your ruby project see
RDoc::Markup.  RDoc::Parser::Ruby and RDoc::Parser::C have additional
directives (such as metaprogrammed methods) for documenting Ruby and C files

To generate HTML documentation for your project run <tt>rdoc .</tt> in your
project's root directory.

To determine how well your project is documented run <tt>rdoc -C lib</tt> to
get a documentation coverage report.  <tt>rdoc -C1 lib</tt> includes parameter
names in the documentation coverage report.

To generate documentation using +rake+ see RDoc::Task.

To generate documentation programmatically:

  gem 'rdoc'
  require 'rdoc/rdoc'

  options =
  # see RDoc::Options

  rdoc =
  rdoc.document options
  # see RDoc::RDoc
