Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Good day monks..
I have a small perlTk application that takes a string input and generates a new string.
Is there a way to automate this process, so that my users don't need to copy the string from e.g "Firefox, emesene" and paste it to my App and then go back to firefox and paste the new string. If there was a way to just let the user select the text in firefox and hit a shortcut combination to do the process and substitute the selected string with the new one??
I am targeting Gnome users.
Regards
