wpscan bash command on OSX

If you're pentesting some WordPress installs with wpscan and don't want to type the full path every time you want to use the tool, here's a simple function you can add to your profile:

 function wpscan() {
    ~/path/to/wpscan.rb "$@"

Obviously you'll want to replace the path/to/wpscan.rb with your actual path. I prefer keeping it in ~/Development/PenTest/wpscan/wpscan.rb.

The "$@" will send any arguments you supply to the wpscan command so you can just use it normally and all of your arguments will work.

NOTE: wpscan can be used for evil. Please only use it for good.
