                              Supported formats:
                              c++, css, diff, html_rails, html, 
                              javascript, php, plain_text, python,

    -p, --private             Posted pasties are private

    -s, --stdout              Prints packed pasties instead of posting
    -H, --no-header           Prevents placing pastiepacker promotion in pasties
                              That is, no 'about:' section is added to the top of pasties
    -h, --help                Show this help message.                                     
    
To only pack a selection of files ending with *txt* you can pass a list of file names via STDIN: 

    find * | grep "txt$" | pastiepacker

It outputs the url of the prepared pastie, so you can pipe it to xargs:

    pastiepacker | xargs open

To unpack a packed pastie: pastiepacker http://pastie.caboo.se/175183
- This unpacks the files into a subfolder 175138/
To unpack a private pastie: pastiepacker http://pastie.caboo.se/private/5hwfheniddqmyasmfcxaw
- This unpacks the files into a subfolder 5hwfheniddqmyasmfcxaw/
