fpaste is a command-line front-end for the Fedora Pastebin service at  It allows easy uploading of multiple files, or of copy&pasted
text from stdin, without requiring a web browser. A unique fpaste link is
returned, which can then be given to others who are offering help.

[joeuser@localhost ~]$ fpaste /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

1) PRIMARY: users don't like being flooded with large amounts of text, and
   encourage the use of pastebin sites & utilities instead.
2) A GUI browser like firefox might be inaccessible.
3) A TUI browser like lynx might be too cumbersome.
4) Multiple files can be fpasted.
5) It's often faster & more convenient to use the cli than to copy/paste in a
   browser's textarea.
6) Why not?
