Does anyone know how I can do a command line operation to get coordinates by address? http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/geocoder/ looks like a good tool, but that is an interactive web page. I've tried lynx -post_data, but I am really clueless about getting that to work ... or even if that is a good tool.

Thoughts?

Just Google for: geocoding command line

and you'll receive a list of numerous tools e.g.
https://github.com/dbrady/geocode/blob/master/README.rdoc
Or:
http://www.rubygeocoder.com/

Note: To use the Google API you'll need an API / Developer key, see documentation above, but there are limits on the number of FREE encoding's you can perform per day / per key.
