__DIR__

Description

=begin
There is an snippet of code found in many Ruby scripts, especially testing scripts. It is...

File.dirname(FILE)

For something so common --and something that can not, by its very nature, be put into a reusable method, it is annoying to have to repeatedly calculate the current scripts location. So I respectfully request that a future version of Ruby provide a built-in reference that can be used instead:

DIR

This will improve readability, remove the need for extra variables to store this information, and at the very least, save us a good many keystrokes.
