    Hi rubyists,
    I'm announcing lightning, a gem to speed up your commandline
    experience. Lightning does this by generating functions which wrap
    around commands and translate basenames to their full paths. For
    example:

    $ cd-gem bacon-1.1.0
    # Same as cd /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/bacon-1.1.0

    $ less-ruby fileutils.rb
    # Same as less /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/
    1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb

    Lightning's functions also autocomplete the basenames it can
    translate. For more info:

    * Install with: gem install lightning
    * Intro post: http://tagaholic.me/2010/04/08/lightning-speed-for-your-shell.html
    * User's guide: http://tagaholic.me/2010/04/09/lightning-speed-for-the-user.html
    * Homepage: http://tagaholic.me/lightning

    Enjoy,
    Gabriel
