This little gem/plugin adds a little syntactic sugar to your code. You can append not in the middle of your code to improve readability.
@foo.not.nil? @user.not.active? "something".not.tainted? User.not.new(:name => 'iain') # not sure why you'd want to do this though @foo.not.not.not.not.send(:not).not.nil? # sorry, couldn't resist
To install as a gem:
gem sources add http://gems.github.com gem install iain-not
To install as a Rails plugin:
ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/iain/not
