I have been looking at the tips for irb at:

http://wiki.rubygarden.org/Ruby/page/show/Irb/TipsAndTricks

and I wanted to see what else I could do, how they worked etc.
I noticed that I managed to miss the irb subdirectory out of 
the big .document patch I sent in for the 1.8.5 release.
This is a patch against that release, mainly because so far
I have been unable to build subversion on Solaris9, so I can't
get at the 1_8 branch that easily.

With regard to that: is there a possibility that nightly tarballs
could be made of the branches?  

Anyway, the patch is below.
        Thank you
        Hugh
