Create and Assign multiple selection buffers on terminal emulators.

Hi guys,

I need to parse my consoles content continually (with script), grep stuff and throw it into a X selection buffer. Any pointer on how to do that?

Use GNU screen as the console, and turn on logging. Parse the log file. I have no idea how to stuff data into anything in X.
