This is a little rarely useful extension that uploads the selection as
textfile to a remote site (or does other things). (The implementation is
not currently secure for use in a multiuser environment as it writes to
It listens to the selection-pastebin:remote-pastebin action, which,
when activated, runs a command with % replaced by the name of the
textfile. This command can be set via a resource:
URxvt.selection-pastebin.cmd: rsync -apP % ruth:/var/www/www.ta-sa.org/files/txt/.
And the default is likely not useful to anybody but the few people around
The name of the textfile is the hex encoded md5 sum of the selection, so
the same content should lead to the same filename.
After a successful upload the selection will be replaced by the text given
in the selection-pastebin-url resource (again, the % is the placeholder
for the filename):
Note to xrdb users: xrdb uses the C preprocessor, which might interpret
the double / characters as comment start. Use \057\057 instead,
which works regardless of whether xrdb is used to parse the resource file
