Module: RDoc::RI::Paths

Defined in:
lib/rdoc/ri/paths.rb

Overview

The directories where ri data lives. Paths can be enumerated via ::each, or queried individually via ::system_dir, ::site_dir, ::home_dir and ::gem_dir.

BASE =
File.join RbConfig::CONFIG['ridir'], version

Class Method Details

.each(system = true, site = true, home = true, gems = :latest, *extra_dirs) {|system_dir, :system| ... } ⇒ Object

Iterates over each selected path yielding the directory and type.

Yielded types:

:system

Where Ruby's ri data is stored. Yielded when system is true

:site

Where ri for installed libraries are stored. Yielded when site is true. Normally no ri data is stored here.

:home

~/.rdoc. Yielded when home is true.

:gem

ri data for an installed gem. Yielded when gems is true.

:extra

ri data directory from the command line. Yielded for each entry in extra_dirs

Yields:

  nil
end

.gem_dir(name, version) ⇒ Object

The ri directory for the gem with gem_name.

  req = Gem::Requirement.new "= #{version}"

  spec = Gem::Specification.find_by_name name, req

  File.join spec.doc_dir, 'ri'
end

.gemdirs(filter = :latest) ⇒ Object

The latest installed gems' ri directories. filter can be :all or :latest.

A filter :all includes all versions of gems and includes gems without ri documentation.

end

.home_dirObject

The location of the rdoc data in the user's home directory.

Like ::system, ri data in the user's home directory is rare and predates libraries distributed via RubyGems. ri data is rarely generated into this directory.

.path(system = true, site = true, home = true, gems = :latest, *extra_dirs) ⇒ Object

Returns existing directories from the selected documentation directories as an Array.

end

.raw_path(system, site, home, gems, *extra_dirs) ⇒ Object

Returns selected documentation directories including nonexistent directories.

  path.compact
end

.site_dirObject

The location of ri data installed into the site dir.

Historically this was available for documentation installed by Ruby libraries predating RubyGems. It is unlikely to contain any content for modern Ruby installations.

def self.site_dir
  File.join BASE, 'site'
end

.system_dirObject

The location of the built-in ri data.

This data is built automatically when `make` is run when Ruby is installed. If you did not install Ruby by hand you may need to install the documentation yourself. Please consult the documentation for your package manager or Ruby installer for details. You can also use the rdoc-data gem to install system ri data for common versions of Ruby.
