new(text, name)

Creates a new MethodAttr from token stream text and method or attribute name name.

Usually this is called by super from a subclass.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 78
def initialize text, name
  super()

  @text = text
  @name = name

  @aliases      = []
  @is_alias_for = nil
  @parent_name  = nil
  @singleton    = nil
  @visibility   = :public
  @see = false

  @arglists     = nil
  @block_params = nil
  @call_seq     = nil
  @param_seq    = nil
  @params       = nil
end
Instance Public methods
<=>(other)

Order by singleton then name

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 113
def <=>(other)
  return unless other.respond_to?(:singleton) &&
                other.respond_to?(:name)

  [     @singleton ? 0 : 1,       name] <=>
  [other.singleton ? 0 : 1, other.name]
end
add_alias(an_alias, context)

Abstract method. Contexts in their building phase call this to register a new alias for this known method/attribute.

  • creates a new AnyMethod/Attribute named an_alias.new_name;

  • adds self as an alias for the new method or attribute

  • adds the method or attribute to aliases

  • adds the method or attribute to context.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 209
def add_alias(an_alias, context)
  raise NotImplementedError
end
aref()

HTML fragment reference for this method

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 216
def aref
  type = singleton ? 'c' : 'i'
  # % characters are not allowed in html names => dash instead
  "#{aref_prefix}-#{type}-#{html_name}"
end
aref_prefix()

Prefix for aref, defined by subclasses.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 225
def aref_prefix
  raise NotImplementedError
end
block_params=(value)

Attempts to sanitize the content passed by the Ruby parser: remove outer parentheses, etc.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 233
def block_params=(value)
  # 'yield.to_s' or 'assert yield, msg'
  return @block_params = '' if value =~ /^[\.,]/

  # remove trailing 'if/unless ...'
  return @block_params = '' if value =~ /^(if|unless)\s/

  value = $1.strip if value =~ /^(.+)\s(if|unless)\s/

  # outer parentheses
  value = $1 if value =~ /^\s*\((.*)\)\s*$/
  value = value.strip

  # proc/lambda
  return @block_params = $1 if value =~ /^(proc|lambda)(\s*\{|\sdo)/

  # surrounding +...+ or [...]
  value = $1.strip if value =~ /^\+(.*)\+$/
  value = $1.strip if value =~ /^\[(.*)\]$/

  return @block_params = '' if value.empty?

  # global variable
  return @block_params = 'str' if value =~ /^\$[&0-9]$/

  # wipe out array/hash indices
  value.gsub!(/(\w)\[[^\[]+\]/, '\1')

  # remove @ from class/instance variables
  value.gsub!(/@@?([a-z0-9_]+)/, '\1')

  # method calls => method name
  value.gsub!(/([A-Z:a-z0-9_]+)\.([a-z0-9_]+)(\s*\(\s*[a-z0-9_.,\s]*\s*\)\s*)?/) do
    case $2
    when 'to_s'      then $1
    when 'const_get' then 'const'
    when 'new' then
      $1.split('::').last.  # ClassName => class_name
        gsub(/([A-Z]+)([A-Z][a-z])/,'\1_\2').
        gsub(/([a-z\d])([A-Z])/,'\1_\2').
        downcase
    else
      $2
    end
  end

  # class prefixes
  value.gsub!(/[A-Za-z0-9_:]+::/, '')

  # simple expressions
  value = $1 if value =~ /^([a-z0-9_]+)\s*[-*+\/]/

  @block_params = value.strip
end
documented?()

A method/attribute is documented if any of the following is true:

  • it was marked with :nodoc:;

  • it has a comment;

  • it is an alias for a documented method;

  • it has a #see method that is documented.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 132
def documented?
  super or
    (is_alias_for and is_alias_for.documented?) or
    (see and see.documented?)
end
full_name()

Full method/attribute name including namespace

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 300
def full_name
  @full_name ||= "#{parent_name}#{pretty_name}"
end
html_name()

HTML id-friendly method/attribute name

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 291
def html_name
  require 'cgi'

  CGI.escape(@name.gsub('-', '-2D')).gsub('%','-').sub(/^-/, '')
end
name_prefix()

'::' for a class method/attribute, '#' for an instance method.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 319
def name_prefix
  @singleton ? '::' : '#'
end
output_name(context)

Name for output to HTML. For class methods the full name with a “.” is used like SomeClass.method_name. For instance methods the class name is used if context does not match the parent.

This is to help prevent people from using

to call class methods.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 330
def output_name context
  return "#{name_prefix}#{@name}" if context == parent

  "#{parent_name}#{@singleton ? '.' : '#'}#{@name}"
end
parent_name()

Name of our parent with special handling for un-marshaled methods

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 360
def parent_name
  @parent_name || super
end
path()

Path to this method for use with HTML generator output.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 353
def path
  "#{@parent.path}##{aref}"
end
pretty_name()

Method/attribute name with class/instance indicator

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 339
def pretty_name
  "#{name_prefix}#{@name}"
end
search_record()

Used by RDoc::Generator::JsonIndex to create a record for the search engine.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 398
def search_record
  [
    @name,
    full_name,
    @name,
    @parent.full_name,
    path,
    params,
    snippet(@comment),
  ]
end
see()

A method/attribute to look at, in particular if this method/attribute has no documentation.

It can be a method/attribute of the superclass or of an included module, including the Kernel module, which is always appended to the included modules.

Returns nil if there is no such method/attribute. The #is_alias_for method/attribute, if any, is not included.

Templates may generate a “see also …” if this method/attribute has documentation, and “see …” if it does not.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 152
def see
  @see = find_see if @see == false
  @see
end
store=(store)

Sets the store for this class or module and its contained code objects.

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 160
def store= store
  super

  @file = @store.add_file @file.full_name if @file
end
type()

Type of method/attribute (class or instance)

# File lib/rdoc/method_attr.rb, line 346
def type
  singleton ? 'class' : 'instance'
end
