The original program
I modified xpaste, a small X11 utility that displays the primary selection buffer in a window.
xdoit does not pop any window on your screen but instead sends the
mouse selection buffer to one (or two) application(s) of your choice.
I use it daily to fire up lynx sessions and anonymous ftp transfers from
URLs found in mails/news articles/FAQs...
