Inferior REPL process

Start a irb inferior REPL process with SPC l s i. You may change the REPL command by layer option repl_command. For example, if you want to use pry, load this layer via:

    name = "lang#ruby"
    repl_command = "pry"

however, if the executable is not on your $PATH, then you need to specify a complete file path.

    name = "lang#ruby"
    repl_command = "/NOT/IN/YOUR/PATH/rubocop"

Send code to inferior process commands:
