ruby which: the linux "which" command re-written in ruby [and windows-friendly].
An executable locator (i.e. which or locate command) for windows that works!
Itch it scratches: there seems to be a lack of a "which" command for windows that actually work--they sometimes skip batch files entirely [batch file? what's that?] or don't list extensions, leaving you in doubt. Despite running "which yyy" you never know what you're really running when you next run yyy in the command line--is it yyy.exe or some other yyy.bat that wasn't reported by "which"?
Try it--you might really like it.
Usage:
C:\>whichr ruby
higher in the list will be executed first
./ruby.bat
C:/Ruby/bin/ruby.exe
c:/cygwin/bin/ruby.exe
C:>whichr rub*
higher in the list will be executed first
c:/ruby/bin/rubigen
c:/ruby/bin/rubigen.bat
c:/ruby/bin/ruby.exe
...
Installation:
C:\>gem install rogerdpack-whichr --source http://gems.github.com
Enjoy.

C:\>rwhich ruby-which
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/Pistos-ruby-which-0.5.3/lib/ruby-which.rb
Except you don't actually need it since you have
$ gem which fileutils
/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb
Thanks Eric!
