what - How do I add existing comments to RDoc in Ruby?




yard vs rdoc (2)

A few things that have bitten me:

  • :main: -- RDoc uses only the last one evaluated; best to make sure there's only one in your project and you don't also use the --main command-line argument.
  • same as previous, but for :title:
  • :section: doesn't work very well

I want to format my existing comments as 'RDoc comments' so they can be viewed using ri.

What are some recommended resources for starting out using RDoc?


RDoc uses SimpleMarkup so it's fairly simple to create lists, etc. using *, - or a number. It also treats lines that are indented at the same column number as part of the same paragraph until there is an empty line which signifies a new paragraph. Do you have a few examples of comments you want RDoc'ed so we could show you how to do them and then you could extrapolate that for the rest of your comments?
