Initial release of lightning

Posts: n/a
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

$ 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/

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

* Install with: gem install lightning
