Ruby: using irb and ri as a exploratory learning device

with one comment


irb> Kernel.methods.each do |method| puts method; system "/usr/local/bin/ri --no-pager Kernel##{method}"; ch = STDIN.getc; break if (ch.chr == 'q') end

Once you enter this just keep hit enter until you want to quit, at that point hit ‘q’ and enter.

Still some kinks to be worked out but it is a start

  1. Very crude and limited use utility.

    That’s what happen when you learn, experiment and rejoice non-success.

    You need a lot of work to get some where.
