rails executable's operation is confusing

Reported by Kyle Maxwell | February 12th, 2010 @ 12:07 AM

If you run "rails generate controller foo" outside of a rails path, it makes a new rails app called generate. Obviously, this isn't what I intended. I'd prefer to see the rails command tell me when this happens.

    Hi all, really simple patch (with test) to make sure that "rails generate controller foo" doesn't create an application called generate, because you misused it outside of the path of a rails app. Not urgennt; just a little polish that I think would be nice for the 3.0final.
