Useful methods like included don't appear in RDoc

Added by agrimm (Andrew Grimm) over 9 years ago. Updated over 9 years ago.

Status:
Third Party's Issue
Priority:
Normal
Target version:
-
ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.1p378 (2010-01-10 revision 26273) [i386-mingw32]
Backport:
[ruby-core:44760]

Description

=begin
Methods like (({Module.included})) and (({Module.private_constant})) don't appear in ruby-doc.org's documentation, because they are private methods. This can cause difficulty for new users of Ruby, for example in http://stackoverflow.com/q/10369876/38765

While there is a rationale behind not showing some private methods, because they are implementation details that should not be relied upon by users of Ruby, this isn't the case here.

This issue has been discussed in ruby-core:40662 and elsewhere, but is something that needs to be put in a bug tracker.
