       rdoc2.5 - Generate documentation from Ruby script files

       rdoc2.5 [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 subdirecto-
       ries) 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 sat-
              isfying :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

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

       --ri-system, -Y
              generate  output for use by 'ri.' The files are stored in a sys-
              tem-level directory, making them accessible to others,  so  spe-
              cial  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 contain a '%s', the filename will be appended to it.
