Allows drag`n drop operations from the command line.

Overview

CLIDrag allows drag-and-drop operations to be initiated from the command line. It supports dragging of a number of different data types including files, text and images. It has a flexible command line interface and an attractive appearance. It also allows the command line to change the contents of the clipboard.

Drag and drop is a very important tool in the GUI arsenal, but was previously not accessible from the command line. Advanced shell features make the feature even more useful than before. One less reason for switching to the Finder.

CLIDrag can drag a number of different types of data, including text (from a number of sources), pictures and URLs. In addition to dragging, it can also place this data on the clipboard.

I think I understand what it does, but I'm not sure what the point is. It lets you use POSIX tools to select files to be moved. But you can do that with cp and mv, or with CpMac and MvMac for files with resource forks. The developer needs to clarify why this is worth money.

The concept is very useful (I already have a free version that just drags files and is nowhere near as powerful, but works), but it's not worth $15. If It was $5, I'd go ahead and buy it despite having my free poor man's drag. If it cost $10, I wouldn't buy it but I'd think it was priced decently. But $15 is just too much for this.

Reply: Drag-and-drop is not only used to move / copy files. It is used for a whole class of inter-application communication tasks. For example, you can drag audio files to iTunes to add them to the library, to an FTP program to upload them to the server, to an image program to edit them or to a chat program to send them to a peer. Terminal tools, such as shell filename globbing, can be used with drag-and-drop operations with great efficiency. In addition, it can be used to drag things that cannot normally be dragged, such as hidden files.
