[1] pry(main)> gist -d Kernel
Error: The method 'Kernel' could not be found. Type gist --help for help.
[2] pry(main)> gist -d Array
NoMethodError: undefined method code_type' for #<#<Class:0x007fe391503fa8>:0x007fe3938f2068> from /Users/me/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p194@dtf/bundler/gems/pry-37d9e5cbb952/lib/pry/default_commands/gist.rb:43:inblock (2 levels) in options'

The first line isn't a bug. Kernel is a module, not a method. Modules don't have a source location and can be reopened (not to mentioned Kernel, in YARV, is defined in a C file).

Right, I included for completeness after discussing the initial with banisterfiend. It was also included because he was thinking of making it return a list of the methods like ri Kernel does. But the 2nd is a bug.
