It's pronounced like rubbish

What is it?

Rubysh is a little DSL that scans your systems PATH and exposes everything there as a funtion. For example:

-ls(" -a")

would be equivalent to

system("ls -a")

If you use a + instead of a minus the commend is run as a sub process and the stdout is returned to ruby as a string.

output = +ls
p output #would be the contents of your current directory

You can also pipe commands together like in a bash script


Lastly you can also pipe arbitrary strings into a commands stdin like so

"input".grep("-ro [nu]")

yes I know this is a crime. thank you for your patronage.
