A commandline drag-and-drop tool for GNOME.

Dragbox is a tool for connecting the commandline with the desktop environment. It summons a drag handle when you are managing files or information in a shell. It accepts both drags and drops, and can be made to output dragged-to items to the standard output. You can also pipe text to Dragbox, or a list of files using xargs.
