Makes pbcopy available in Ruby

On the mac command line, there is a unix utility that you can use to copy to the pasteboard.

which ruby | pbcopy

I use this often, and wound up wishing I had access to it in the terminal. So I made the pbcopy gem.

It defines String#| and Object#pbcopy, and can be used like this:

# in Ruby, will copy the version into the pasteboard

# "redirect" any object into the pasteboard
pbcopy < [1, 2, 3]

I use it for things like copying login credentials into the pasteboard after making a user in the Rails console, so that I can go to the site and log in.

Code is on github.
