Shell / CLI Interaction Plug-In?


Once upon a time (prior to IDEA 6.0, evidently), there was a plug-in and associated command-line tool that allowed one to open files from a shell. I forget the name of that plug-in but I know that when I tried it (many months ago, now) I found that it was not compatible with the plug-in API in IDEA 6.0.

My question is this: Is there any plug-in that makes it possible to open a file in IDEA by executing a command-line program? (I'm using version 7 EA under Linux, which is why I'm asking here.)
