copying text from terminal BASH window to a webpage.


How do you do that? Drag and drop doesn't work. Yet, I see this done all of the time.

Yes, this is a stupid question.

1. MARK with left mouse button.

2. PASTE with middle mouse button (or with both left and right buttons).

The above assumes you configured properly the mouse in your FreeBSD.

Depending on what you're using for a Window Manager (let's assume Gnome or KDE), just select the text with the mouse, then right-click and select "copy" or "paste" to go the other direction.

Answered my own question

I'm trying to do this. In the upper left of the BASH window, there is an option called Edit.

Highlight the text. Go to Edit. Select Copy. Then go to the html page and select paste.

Just using Control-C or Control-Shift C to paste doesn't work. You have to use the drop down from Edit. This is true for my PC-BSD box and Fedora 8.

Who knows? This might help someone.

Yes, that's right. Those control characters have a different purpose in the shell, so they can't be used to control copying. You need to use the menu.
