Please grab cliaws from Rubyforge:

1 $ gem install cliaws

What is Cliaws?

Cliaws is a replacement for the Amazon EC2 API tools, but uses Ruby, and thus does not suffer from a long boot time. Cliaws is also easier to setup:

1 $ AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=# Your Access ID
2 $ AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=# Your secret ID
3 $ # Setup is done, enjoy!
4 $ clis3 list YOUR_BUCKET
5 $ cliec2 launch AMI --keypair KEYNAME

Please view the README for some details. The implementation is still the best place to get information about the options you can pass.
