[kwlug-disc] my new favourite command

Hi list,

Just discovered the 'rlwrap' command.  It is a wrapper that turns
any command line oriented program into a readline-capable interface.

For example, you can run netcat through rlwrap, and get history and
command editing:

	rlwrap nc

This also works for things like xboard when connecting to a chess
server (this is where I first learned of it).

What other new commands have people learned lately?
