I'm developing method autocompletion for the jEdit Ruby Editor Plugin,
using the "if it quacks, it waddles" approach. Unfortunately you'll
have to wait a couple of weeks for me to get it finished.

I've added a search documentation feature to the plugin, which does a
search via ri and reports back the results in a dialog. You can get
jEdit and the Ruby Editor Plugin from:
http://www.jedit.org/ruby/

Feedback is welcome.

Cheers,
