As far as I've been able to tell, Ruby's openssl is just a very basic
wrapper. Most docs/examples for openssl in general can be used as a
basis for doing the same thing in Ruby. Unfortunately, openssl doesn't
have the greatest docs either so a lot of searching is still required.
It does help to not limit your searches to Ruby specifically though.

You might also find some more useful examples if you download the Ruby
source code and look in sample/openssl/.

If you have a more specific question, post here and I'll try to help.
