Handle common directives that can occur in a block of text:

:include: filename

Directives can be escaped by preceding them with a backslash.

RDoc plugin authors can register additional directives to be handled by using RDoc::Markup::PreProcess.register.

Any directive that is not built-in to RDoc (including those registered via plugins) will be stored in the metadata hash on the CodeObject the comment is attached to. See Directives at RDoc::Markup for the list of built-in directives.

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.
