Retrieve a node module's readme from the command line, and pipe it into less.


> npm install readme -g


Show the readme for a node module.

readme resolves your module in the same way as require()

> readme optimist # for a locally installed module

> readme ./       # for the current module.

> readme readme -g # for a globally installed module.

> readme readme --web # open the project's webpage

> readme readme --gh # open the projects github page
