Description Mamoru TASAKA 2009-10-13 17:56:57 UTC
Description of problem:
Even with ri document files are installed via gem (based Fedora
rpm package), ri does not correctly detect and show such
ri manual pages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ruby-ri-1.8.6.369-3.fc12

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install ruby-ri rubygem-mocha
2. ri mocha
3.
  
Actual results:
mock-chroot> ri mocha
Nothing known about mocha

Expected results:
ri mocha should show like below:

More than one method matched your request. You can refine
your search by asking for information on one of:

     Mocha::ObjectMethods#mocha_inspect,
     Mocha::InStateOrderingConstraint#mocha_inspect,
     Mocha::DefaultName#mocha_inspect,
     Mocha::MethodMatcher#mocha_inspect, Mocha::Mockery#mocha_inspect,
     Mocha::TimeMethods#mocha_inspect, Mocha::Cardinality#mocha_inspect,

Additional info:
ri --help shows:
--------------------------------------------------------
By default ri searches for documentation in the following
directories:

    /usr/share/ri/1.8/system
    /usr/share/ri/1.8/site
    /builddir/.rdoc
    /builddir/.gem/ruby/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/doc/*/ri
....
....
         --gems   Include documentation from Rubygems:
                    /builddir/.gem/ruby/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/doc/*/ri
--------------------------------------------------------
This is not right.
Looking at lib/rdoc/ri/ri_options.rb, lib/rdoc/ri/ri_paths.rb,
for example ri_path.rb contains:
--------------------------------------------------------
    45      begin
    46        require 'rubygems'
    47        GEMDIRS = Dir["#{Gem.path}/doc/*/ri"]
    48        GEMDIRS.each { |path| RI::Paths::PATH << path }
    49      rescue LoadError
    50        GEMDIRS = nil
    51      end
--------------------------------------------------------
However as far as I checked F-11/12/13 rubygems returns:
--------------------------------------------------------
$ ruby -e 'require "rubygems" ; p Gem.path'
["/home/tasaka1/.gem/ruby/1.8", "/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8"]
--------------------------------------------------------
So Gem.path is not a string but an array and the above
code cannot handle this correctly.

I wrote the original patch and Tagoh-san posted much better idea
for this. (i.e. the patch is not taken from the upstream)
The idea for the patch is written in my comment 0.
i.e. for example 
GEMDIRS = Dir["#{Gem.path}/doc/*/ri"]
is wrong as Gem.path is an array and the patch is trying to treat
this correctly.
