send files via ssh-xfer

cat somefilehere.txt | ssh-xfer nametocallfile.txt -
from http://matt.ucc.asn.au/ssh-xfer/ "ssh-xfer is a hackish but handy way of transferring files from remote hosts to your local computer. Firstly, you need to run a slightly modified SSH authentication agent program on your local computer. Patches are available for both OpenSSH and PuTTY, see below. If you haven't used a SSH agent program before, this article seems to be reasonable, or you can look at the OpenSSH/PuTTY docs. You don't need any modifications to your ssh client or server programs - only the modified SSH authentication agent, and the extra ssh-xfer program."
