irb
irb(main)> t = Time.new
=> ...
irb(main)> t.m #[tab]
t.mday t.method t.methods t.min t.mon t.month

Rails Console
>> Feed.fi #[tab]
Feed.find
Feed.find_all
Feed.find_all_with_deprecation
Feed.find_all_without_deprecation
...

Win XP, ruby 1.8.5 and rails 1.2.2. Google away if not on your machine.
