hpaste.el is an Emacs Lisp library that integrates hpaste into Emacs. It provides two functions,
hpaste-paste-buffer, which send the region or buffer to the hpaste server as required. Most things are customisable: do M-x customize and browse to the Hpaste group to see what you can change. Code is available under the GPL license. Enjoy!
