I have been looking for documentation, like rdoc, for rubygems and the Gem module, to no avail.
gem server provides a www link to this site with everything about the gem command (very nice) but nothing about rubygems methods or the Gem module. One sees a passing comment like "use the gem method to set a specific version..." but how would you know there was a gem method? What other methods exist? One can have a look at Gem.methods. Where are these documented? How would one even know Gem exists save gleaning it from examples?

    There's RDoc for Rubygems:


    If there's not enough docs, feel free to submit some patches! :)
