And, one of my favorite IRB recipes:

irb(main):001:0> require 'net/http'
irb(main):002:0> url = 'http://example.com/some.xml'
irb(main):003:0> xml = Net::HTTP.get(URI.parse(url))
irb(main):004:0> IO.popen('pbcopy', 'w') { |io| io.write(xml) }

pbcopy puts text in the clipboard on OS X.  Cygwin has a similar

pretty durn handy though!
