Smart snippet system

'cool3s' is a smart snippet system designed to make a snippet library available in cooledit, a snippet being a reusable, or a generated on the spot piece of text. Written in Bash shell script command language it is multi functional and can be used for other applications or in the shell. It presents you with a menu of your snippets which it then enters in the application that called it or echos it to your screen. There are also configuration options that can bypass the selection menu and retrieve the snippet of your choice at once. 'cool3s' runs on any system that runs bash as a shell.
