For create a buffer for example (and a lot of others processing and GDAL tools) add the possibility to work only with selected feature.
I know that a GDAL script doesn't take the selection parameter because it isn't a GIS software, but in QGIS, I think it will be a nice to have feature.

This option is already available in Processing, can you be more specific?

Ok, I discover again a great function of QGIS ...
But I modify my request :
Because it's a hidden feature (the user isn't aware that the tool will only work on selected feature), let the user choose between work on the whole layer or only selected features, like in the spatial query plugin (check box).
