Recent versions of RDoc have, for whatever reason, removed the "plain"
output type from the `ri` command, which TextMate uses for the Ruby
documentation command. If you have installed/upgraded rdoc manually,
this might be what causes your problem.

Downgrade the rdoc gem to an older version (I use 2.4.3, current is
2.5.8, if I remember correctly 2.5.3 is broken as well) and you should
be fine.
