Is it possible to set alias for gem name, so it will automatically create link in bash?
I have gem test and want to run all commands not only with 'test <command>', but also 'moyo <command>'

    It is not possible to create an alias in bash through a Gem::Specification.

    You can create a second executable.

    Note that there is already a test(1) on all UNIX-like operating systems.
