rake

I've been looking into rake. rake appears to be a very heavy duty
thing along the lines of make. I'm thinking that there must be some
pretty serious documentation somewhere; but, I seem to be having
trouble turning it up. Can someone please point me in the right
direction? Thanks.

And googling for "ruby rake" turned up:

A classic exposition on Rake albeit rather old:

A much more recent tutorial, with some more links at the end:

And googling for "ruby rake" turned up:

Yep. I had seen that. I was looking more for comprehensive formal
documentation like what the link that Philip pointed to. Anyway, I am
squared away now (at least on that issue). Thanks to all who provided
input.
