ViewMe is a program for opening files that need to be viewed with other viewers. It supports URLs, commands, or any other file type. It was largely inspired by LHA but it has far more features. You can just use viewme to create command shortcuts, set it up as the image viewer in your mail client, use it as the command-line for the IceWM address bar, etc. ViewME has both an X graphical interface and a text interface.
