Yes!, It has been very helpful to me. I can see what i need to prepare  
and looking for when get an error.

I found the debugger method is very powerful - http://gist.github.com/61605 
  >> and would be nice if It can auto load when Ruby.Console is start?

encourage everyone to try & contribute
Thank you,
