Issue #10196 has been updated by Luiz Angelo Daros de Luca.


I sent a PR for rdoc/rdoc in github. Probably
it is the right place to ask for changes in rdoc.

Bug #10196: rdoc should not depend on gems

Hello,

It seems in rdoc code that it can run without gems.

However, at some places, it explicitly cites gem or Gem without dealing with
the exception. Also, it requires "rubygems", which might be useless since
gem_prelude does that.

I created a patch to remove the extra 'require "rubygems"' and treat the gem "xxx"
exception just like /usr/bin/rdoc does
