RVM allows you to alias your rubies for your convenience and pleasure.
First select a RVM ruby.
$ rvm alias create php ree-1.8.7-p2010.01
Now that you have created an alias, you can use the alias in place of the longer rvm selector string.
$ rvm use php $ ruby -v ruby 1.8.7 (2009-12-24 patchlevel 248) [i686-darwin10.3.0], MBARI 0x6770, Ruby Enterprise Edition 2010.01
If you use any aliases that are rather funny, please hop in #rvm and let us know :)
If you wish to delete an alias
$ rvm alias delete dotnet
You can also list all current aliases
$ rvm alias list php => ree-1.8.7-p2010.01 lisp => maglev-head python => rbx-head
