Encapsulate all the strangeness to do with finding out where to find RDoc files

We basically deal with three directories:

  1. The ‘system’ documentation directory, which holds the documentation distributed with Ruby, and which is managed by the Ruby install process

  2. The ‘site’ directory, which contains site-wide documentation added locally.

  3. The ‘user’ documentation directory, stored under the user’s own home directory.

There’s contention about all this, but for now:







Commenting is here to help enhance the documentation. For example, code samples, or clarification of the documentation.

If you have questions about Ruby or the documentation, please post to one of the Ruby mailing lists. You will get better, faster, help that way.

If you wish to post a correction of the docs, please do so, but also file bug report so that it can be corrected for the next release. Thank you.
