in reply to Different "states" in a my own Shell

Copyrighted and patented, eh? Just so you know, if you haven't ACTUALLY patented it yet, I don't think you will be able patent it in the future, since you've just published it :)

I don't know anything on CPAN that specifically applies to your scenario, but you might want to look at the programs Katapult (for KDE) and Quicksilver (for OS X). They're not shell replacements, but they do the handy search-plugin thing really well (especially Quicksilver). Browsing over the code for Katapult (which is open source) may give you some ideas.

    Nah, I was mostly kidding although it's an idea I haven't seen ANYONE do yet and that could be quite nifty... And as some say, you can't really patent an idea... too bad as I am full of those... :)

    And yea, know about those thanks. Quicksilver is an app with GUI. I still use the terminal.. and can easly add GUI too it if wanted. You know, as a Linux user I know the power of the terminal ;)
