  1. Hi,

    Is there a gem command to open up the rdoc for a particular gem in the
    default browser at the index page??? e.g. something like "gem rdoc
    rspec", and this would open up firefox at the index.html page of the
    rspec gem API doco....

    Tks

    look at the 'gem server' command.

    thanks - I was kind of fishing for a lower resource intensive shortcut
    to load the index.html page from one's HDD given it's there, without
    having to run a web server, however if this doesn't exist then knowing
    about gem server is great
