Overview

RDoc::CrossReference is a reusable way to create cross references for names.

Constant Summary collapse

CLASS_REGEXP_STR =

Regular expression to match class references

  1. There can be a '\' in front of text to suppress the cross-reference

  2. There can be a '::' in front of class names to reference from the top-level namespace.

  3. The method can be followed by parenthesis (not recommended)

'\\\\?((?:\:{2})?[A-Z]\w*(?:\:\:\w+)*)'
METHOD_REGEXP_STR =

Regular expression to match method references.

See CLASS_REGEXP_STR

'([a-z]\w*[!?=]?|%|===|\[\]=?|<<|>>)(?:\([\w.+*/=<>-]*\))?'
CROSSREF_REGEXP =

Regular expressions matching text that should potentially have cross-reference links generated are passed to add_special. Note that these expressions are meant to pick up text for which cross-references have been suppressed, since the suppression characters are removed by the code that is triggered.

  # The stuff after CLASS_REGEXP_STR is a
  # nasty hack.  CLASS_REGEXP_STR unfortunately matches
  # words like dog and cat (these are legal "class"
  # names in Fortran 95).  When a word is flagged as a
  # potential cross-reference, limitations in the markup
  # engine suppress other processing, such as typesetting.
  # This is particularly noticeable for contractions.
  # In order that words like "can't" not
  # be flagged as potential cross-references, only
  # flag potential class cross-references if the character
  # after the cross-reference is a space, sentence
  # punctuation, tag start character, or attribute
  # marker.

Instance Method Details

#resolve(name, text) ⇒ Object

Returns a reference to name.

If the reference is found and name is not documented text will be returned. If name is escaped name is returned. If name is not found text is returned.
