in reply to Simple tool for making HTML blockquotes from text selections

if you're on a unixy box, take a look for a program called 'xclip'.

$ xclip -o | pmnodecomp-blockquote

it should take care of all of that ^D or <<EOF nonsense.

plus it's a good example of why 'useless use of cat' is a good thing (IMHO). using useless cat allows you to easily replace the useless cat by a usefull program changing only what comes before the pipe.

    Thanks for the suggestion, zengargoyle, and also to TVSET (replies that follow). I wanted to avoid giving the impression that I had appropriated your idea w/o so much as a nod in your direction (in Updates above, in root node) -- in fact I came up with and reposted much the same workflow plan independently before revisiting the node and seeing your reply. Nonetheless thanks very much; obviously great minds ... or some kind of minds ... think alike. ;-)
