[Rubygems-developers] Quick feature request: cd to directory of a
gsinclair at soyabean.com.au

Context: I want to check out Net::SSH - the code, that is. So I
install the gem; now what?
I want to go
gem cd net-ssh
and have a shell prompt open in /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/net-ssh
so I can poke around.
Is this a cool feature or not? And how could it be implemented?
Maybe I've missed something simple, but I tried a while ago with no
success. Obviously one needs to be mindful of people's different
shells as well.
A different approach might be this:
$ cd /tmp
$ gem unpack net-ssh
$ cd net-ssh-0.0.3
... now poke around ...
Man, that'd be cooool, and easy to implement. And then you're poking
around in a copy, so you can't muck up the gem directory. I think
that's the way to go.
