Newbie question - console window

While the IDE does all the running of the ruby executable / rake / git etc (which is useful) sometimes you just want a pure console window.. it would be good if this was available as a tab or a window in the IDE.

When working with MongoDB for example I use the command-line version to check data in the DB or use IRB to test some syntax etc (as Im just learning Ruby)

Currently I have to have a seperate console window, if I was running using Aptana I can have a console window running in a tab alongside my code, this is extremely useful and would be very cool if RubyMine were able to do this too.

Please tell me if this is already possible !

In case you need IRB or Rails console please use: Tools | Run IRB Console or Tools | Run Rails Console.
In case when you need bash please add bash as an external tool. Here are instructions: http://www.jetbrains.com/ruby/webhelp/external-tools.html
We have some plans on intergrating console in rubymine: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/RUBY-5497
Feel free to comment, vote and get notified once it is done.

Best regards,
Oleg
