I'm looking for a way to capture notes from a terminal,
without having to jump over to emacs.

In the past, I simply append the text from the command line
to my ~/refile.org file, but if I have emacs running and have a modified
~/refile.org buffer, then I run into complications.

I think that a good way would be to have a bash script
that tells emacs to run one of the org-capture functions,
along with the newly entered text from the command line.

Can anyone point me to the right function to call?

Thanks,
--Nate

If you have your emacs running a server [1], then you can easily connect
from without using emacsclient.  For example this short shell script
will echo its arguments in your message buffer.
