Let's say you have used the Terminal in OS X to navigate to the directory containing a file you want to open with the default program, e.g. the .xcodeproj bundle. How do you open that file?

It's as simple as 'Open MyApp.xcodeproj'.

The same goes for when you want to open an app. 'Open'.

Do you happen to run Ruby on your Mac? If so, take 5 minutes and set up RVM, the super simple Ruby Version Manager.

By using RVM, you can install different rubies by using 'rvm install jruby-1.4.0' and switch between them by using 'rvm use jruby-1.4.0'.

Info on how to install here.
