RDoc::RDoc

Encapsulate the production of rdoc documentation. Basically you can use this as you would invoke rdoc from the command line:

rdoc = RDoc::RDoc.new
rdoc.document(args)

Where args is an array of strings, each corresponding to an argument you’d give rdoc on the command line. See <tt>rdoc –help<tt> for details.

Plugins

When you require 'rdoc/rdoc' RDoc looks for ‘rdoc/discover’ files in your installed gems. This can be used to load alternate generators or add additional preprocessor directives.

You will want to wrap your plugin loading in an RDoc version check. Something like:

begin
  gem 'rdoc', '~> 3'
  require 'path/to/my/awesome/rdoc/plugin'
rescue Gem::LoadError
end

The most obvious plugin type is a new output generator. See RDoc::Generator for details.

You can also hook into RDoc::Markup to add new directives (:nodoc: is a directive). See RDoc::Markup::PreProcess.register for details.

Public Class Methods

add_generator(klass) click to toggle source

Add klass that can generate output after parsing

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 84
def self.add_generator(klass)
  name = klass.name.sub(/^RDoc::Generator::/, '').downcase
  GENERATORS[name] = klass
end
            
current() click to toggle source

Active RDoc::RDoc instance

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 92
def self.current
  @current
end
            
current=(rdoc) click to toggle source

Sets the active RDoc::RDoc instance

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 99
def self.current=(rdoc)
  @current = rdoc
end
            
new() click to toggle source

Creates a new RDoc::RDoc instance. Call document to parse files and generate documentation.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 115
def initialize
  @current       = nil
  @exclude       = nil
  @generator     = nil
  @last_modified = {}
  @old_siginfo   = nil
  @options       = nil
  @stats         = nil
end
            
reset() click to toggle source

Resets all internal state

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 106
def self.reset
  RDoc::TopLevel.reset
  RDoc::Parser::C.reset
end
            

Public Instance Methods

document(options) click to toggle source

Generates documentation or a coverage report depending upon the settings in options.

options can be either an RDoc::Options instance or an array of strings equivalent to the strings that would be passed on the command line like %w[-q -o doc -t My\ Doc\ Title]. document will automatically call RDoc::Options#finish if an options instance was given.

For a list of options, see either RDoc::Options or rdoc --help.

By default, output will be stored in a directory called “doc” below the current directory, so make sure you’re somewhere writable before invoking.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 410
def document options
  RDoc::RDoc.reset

  if RDoc::Options === options then
    @options = options
    @options.finish
  else
    @options = RDoc::Options.new
    @options.parse options
  end

  if @options.pipe then
    handle_pipe
    exit
  end

  @exclude = @options.exclude

  unless @options.coverage_report then
    @last_modified = setup_output_dir @options.op_dir, @options.force_update
  end

  @start_time = Time.now

  file_info = parse_files @options.files

  @options.default_title = "RDoc Documentation"

  RDoc::TopLevel.complete @options.visibility

    generate file_info
  end

  if @stats and (@options.coverage_report or not @options.quiet) then
    puts
    puts @stats.summary
  end

  exit @stats.fully_documented? if @options.coverage_report
end
            
error(msg) click to toggle source

Report an error message and exit

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 128
def error(msg)
  raise RDoc::Error, msg
end
            
gather_files(files) click to toggle source

Gathers a set of parseable files from the files and directories listed in files.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 136
def gather_files files
  files = ["."] if files.empty?

  file_list = normalized_file_list files, true, @exclude

  file_list = file_list.uniq

  file_list = remove_unparseable file_list
end
            
generate(file_info) click to toggle source

Generates documentation for file_info (from parse_files) into the output dir using the generator selected by the RDoc options

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 469
def generate file_info
  Dir.chdir @options.op_dir do
    begin
      self.class.current = self

      unless @options.quiet then
        $stderr.puts "\nGenerating #{@generator.class.name.sub(/^.*::/, '')} format into #{Dir.pwd}..."
      end

      @generator.generate file_info
      update_output_dir '.', @start_time, @last_modified
    ensure
      self.class.current = nil
    end
  end
end
            
handle_pipe() click to toggle source

Turns RDoc from stdin into HTML

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 149
def handle_pipe
  @html = RDoc::Markup::ToHtml.new

  out = @html.convert $stdin.read

  $stdout.write out
end
            
install_siginfo_handler() click to toggle source

Installs a siginfo handler that prints the current filename.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 160
def install_siginfo_handler
  return unless Signal.list.include? 'INFO'

  @old_siginfo = trap 'INFO' do
    puts @current if @current
  end
end
            
list_files_in_directory(dir) click to toggle source

Return a list of the files to be processed in a directory. We know that this directory doesn’t have a .document file, so we’re looking for real files. However we may well contain subdirectories which must be tested for .document files.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 307
def list_files_in_directory dir
  files = Dir.glob File.join(dir, "*")

  normalized_file_list files, false, @options.exclude
end
            
normalized_file_list(relative_files, force_doc = false, exclude_pattern = nil) click to toggle source

Given a list of files and directories, create a list of all the Ruby files they contain.

If force_doc is true we always add the given files, if false, only add files that we guarantee we can parse. It is true when looking at files given on the command line, false when recursing through subdirectories.

The effect of this is that if you want a file with a non-standard extension parsed, you must name it explicitly.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 266
def normalized_file_list(relative_files, force_doc = false,
                         exclude_pattern = nil)
  file_list = []

  relative_files.each do |rel_file_name|
    next if exclude_pattern && exclude_pattern =~ rel_file_name
    stat = File.stat rel_file_name rescue next

    case type = stat.ftype
    when "file" then
      next if last_modified = @last_modified[rel_file_name] and
              stat.mtime.to_i <= last_modified.to_i

      if force_doc or RDoc::Parser.can_parse(rel_file_name) then
        file_list << rel_file_name.sub(/^\.\//, '')
        @last_modified[rel_file_name] = stat.mtime
      end
    when "directory" then
      next if rel_file_name == "CVS" || rel_file_name == ".svn"

      dot_doc = File.join rel_file_name, RDoc::DOT_DOC_FILENAME

      if File.file? dot_doc then
        file_list << parse_dot_doc_file(rel_file_name, dot_doc)
      else
        file_list << list_files_in_directory(rel_file_name)
      end
    else
      raise RDoc::Error, "I can't deal with a #{type} #{rel_file_name}"
    end
  end

  file_list.flatten
end
            
output_flag_file(op_dir) click to toggle source

Return the path name of the flag file in an output directory.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 231
def output_flag_file(op_dir)
  File.join op_dir, "created.rid"
end
            
parse_dot_doc_file(in_dir, filename) click to toggle source

The .document file contains a list of file and directory name patterns, representing candidates for documentation. It may also contain comments (starting with ‘#’)

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 240
def parse_dot_doc_file in_dir, filename
  # read and strip comments
  patterns = File.read(filename).gsub(/#.*/, '')

  result = []

  patterns.split.each do |patt|
    candidates = Dir.glob(File.join(in_dir, patt))
    result.concat normalized_file_list(candidates)
  end

  result
end
            
parse_file(filename) click to toggle source

Parses filename and returns an RDoc::TopLevel

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 316
  def parse_file filename
    if defined?(Encoding) then
      encoding = @options.encoding
      filename = filename.encode encoding
    end

    @stats.add_file filename

    content = RDoc::Encoding.read_file filename, encoding

    return unless content

    top_level = RDoc::TopLevel.new filename

    parser = RDoc::Parser.for top_level, filename, content, @options, @stats

    return unless parser

    parser.scan

    # restart documentation for the classes & modules found
    top_level.classes_or_modules.each do |cm|
      cm.done_documenting = false
    end

    top_level

  rescue => e
    $stderr.puts <<-EOF
Before reporting this, could you check that the file you're documenting
has proper syntax:

  #{Gem.ruby} -c #{filename}

RDoc is not a full Ruby parser and will fail when fed invalid ruby programs.

The internal error was:

\t(#{e.class}) #{e.message}

    EOF

    $stderr.puts e.backtrace.join("\n\t") if $DEBUG_RDOC

    raise e
    nil
  end
            
parse_files(files) click to toggle source

Parse each file on the command line, recursively entering directories.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 367
def parse_files files
  file_list = gather_files files
  @stats = RDoc::Stats.new file_list.size, @options.verbosity

  return [] if file_list.empty?

  file_info = []

  @stats.begin_adding

  file_info = file_list.map do |filename|
    @current = filename
    parse_file filename
  end.compact

  @stats.done_adding

  file_info
end
            
remove_siginfo_handler() click to toggle source

Removes a siginfo handler and replaces the previous

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 489
def remove_siginfo_handler
  return unless Signal.list.key? 'INFO'

  handler = @old_siginfo || 'DEFAULT'

  trap 'INFO', handler
end
            
remove_unparseable(files) click to toggle source

Removes file extensions known to be unparseable from files

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 390
def remove_unparseable files
  files.reject do |file|
    file =~ /\.(?:class|eps|erb|scpt\.txt|ttf|yml)$/
  end
end
            
setup_output_dir(dir, force) click to toggle source

Create an output dir if it doesn’t exist. If it does exist, but doesn’t contain the flag file created.rid then we refuse to use it, as we may clobber some manually generated documentation

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 173
  def setup_output_dir(dir, force)
    flag_file = output_flag_file dir

    last = {}

    if @options.dry_run then
      # do nothing
    elsif File.exist? dir then
      error "#{dir} exists and is not a directory" unless File.directory? dir

      begin
        open flag_file do |io|
          unless force then
            Time.parse io.gets

            io.each do |line|
              file, time = line.split "\t", 2
              time = Time.parse(time) rescue next
              last[file] = time
            end
          end
        end
      rescue SystemCallError, TypeError
        error <<-ERROR

Directory #{dir} already exists, but it looks like it isn't an RDoc directory.

Because RDoc doesn't want to risk destroying any of your existing files,
you'll need to specify a different output directory name (using the --op <dir>
option)

        ERROR
      end unless @options.force_output
    else
      FileUtils.mkdir_p dir
      FileUtils.touch output_flag_file dir
    end

    last
  end
            
update_output_dir(op_dir, time, last = {}) click to toggle source

Update the flag file in an output directory.

 
               # File rdoc/rdoc.rb, line 217
def update_output_dir(op_dir, time, last = {})
  return if @options.dry_run or not @options.update_output_dir

  open output_flag_file(op_dir), "w" do |f|
    f.puts time.rfc2822
    last.each do |n, t|
      f.puts "#{n}\t#{t.rfc2822}"
    end
  end
end
