ruby which: the linux “which” command re-written in ruby [and windows-friendly].
An executable locator (i.e. which or locate command) for windows that works!
Itch it scratches: there seems to be a lack of a “which” command for windows that actually work–they sometimes skip batch files entirely [batch file? what's that?] or don't list extensions, leaving you in doubt. Despite running “which yyy” you never know what you're really running when you next run yyy in the command line–is it yyy.exe or some other yyy.bat that wasn't reported by “which”?
Try it–you might really like it.

Except you don't actually need it since you have $ gem which fileutils /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb
