       rdoc1.9 - Generate documentation from Ruby script files


           rdoc1.9 [options]  [names...]


       Files  are  parsed,  and  the  information  they  contain  collected, before any output is
       produced. This allows cross references between all files to be resolved. If a  name  is  a
       directory,  it  is  traversed.  If  no  names are specified, all Ruby files in the current
       directory (and subdirectories) are processed.

       Available output formatters: chm, html, ri, xml

       For information on where the output goes, use:
           rdoc --help-output


       --accessor, -A accessorname[,..]
              comma separated list of additional  class  methods  that  should  be  treated  like
              'attr_reader'  and  friends.  Option  may  be  repeated. Each accessorname may have
              '=text' appended, in which case that text appears  where  the  r/w/rw  appears  for
              normal accessors.

       --all, -a
              include all methods (not just public) in the output.

       --charset, -c charset
              specifies HTML character-set

       --debug, -D
              displays lots on internal stuff

       --diagram, -d
              generate diagrams showing modules and classes.  You need dot V1.8.6 or later to use
              the     --diagram     option     correctly.     Dot     is      available      from

       --exclude, -x pattern
              do not process files or directories matching pattern. Files given explicitly on the
              command line will never be excluded.

       --extension, -E new=old
              treat files ending with .new as if they ended with .old.  Using  '-E  cgi=rb'  will
              cause xxx.cgi to be parsed as a Ruby file

       --fileboxes, -F
              classes  are  put  in  boxes  which  represents  files, where these classes reside.
              Classes shared between more than one file are shown with list of files that sharing
              them.  Silently discarded if --diagram is not given Experimental.

       --fmt, -f formatname
              set the output formatter (see below).

       --help, -h
              print usage.

       --help-output, -O
              explain the various output options.

       --image-format, -I gif|png|jpg|jpeg
              sets  output  image format for diagrams. Can be png, gif, jpeg, jpg. If this option
              is omitted, png is used. Requires --diagram.

       --include, -i dir[,dir...]
              set (or add to) the list of directories to be searched  when  satisfying  :include:
              requests. Can be used more than once.

       --inline-source, -S
              show method source code inline, rather than via a popup link.

       --line-numbers, -N
              include line numbers in the source code

       --main, -m name
              name will be the initial page displayed.

       --merge, -M
              when creating ri output, merge processed classes into previously documented classes
              of the name name.

       --one-file, -1
              put all the output into a single file.

       --op, -o dir
              set the output directory.

       --opname, -n name
              set the name of the output. Has no effect for HTML.

       --promiscuous, -p
              When documenting a file that contains a module  or  class  also  defined  in  other
              files,  show  all  stuff for that module/class in each files page. By default, only
              show stuff defined in that particular file.

       --quiet, -q
              don't show progress as we parse.

       --ri, -r
              generate output for use by 'ri.' The files are  stored  in  the  '.rdoc'  directory
              under  your  home directory unless overridden by a subsequent --op parameter, so no
              special privileges are needed.

       --ri-site, -R
              generate output for use by 'ri.' The files are stored  in  a  site-wide  directory,
              making them accessible to others, so special privileges are needed.

       --ri-system, -Y
              generate  output for use by 'ri.' The files are stored in a system-level directory,
              making them accessible to others, so special privileges are needed. This option  is
              intended to be used during Ruby installations.

       --show-hash, -H
              a name of the form #name in a comment is a possible hyperlink to an instance method
              name. When displayed, the '#' is removed unless this option is specified.

       --style, -s stylesheet-url
              specifies the URL of a separate stylesheet.

       --tab-width, -w n
              set the width of tab characters (default 8).

       --template, -T template-name
              set the template used when generating output.

       --title, -t text
              set text as the title for the output.

       --version, -v
              display  RDoc's version.

       --webcvs, -W url
              specify a URL for linking to a web frontend to CVS. If the URL contains a ยด%s', the
              name  of  the  current file will be substituted; if the URL doesn't contain a '%s',
              the filename will be appended to it.
