To Run:

From a shell type the following commands:

# change directories to your Mozilla tree
$ cd /path/to/mozilla

# fetch the creation script
$ wget http://fastcomponent.mozdev.org/scripts/fast_component.sh

# run the fast_component creation script
# without any arguments to see the help menu
$ sh fast_component.sh;

# to creat a new project in mozilla/extensions called 'spiderman'
$ sh fast_component.sh spiderman;

# to compile your new project 'spiderman'
$ sh fast_component.sh -c spiderman;

# to test your new project 'spiderman'
$ sh fast_component.sh -t spiderman;

# it's that easy!
