Bug #4091

Ruby man page

Added by Arthur Gunn about 5 years ago. Updated over 4 years ago.

ruby -v:1.9 Backport:


I installed 1.9.2 recently and was reading through its man page. It seems to be a little out of date and contains some miss-spellings and awkward english.

I've attached a patch (also available at https://github.com/gunn/ruby/commit/cabe4be ) with some of the most obvious fixes.
I think more can be done to make the text read more naturally, but I thought it would be good to see what people thought of the more straightforward changes first.

There were also some things I wasn't sure about updating:
The date is currently 'October 25, 2008', is there a policy for updating this?
http://raa.ruby-lang.org is mentioned. Is this still considered current? The last news update was from 2005. Surely http://rubygems.org is at least as deserving of a mention?
