How to redirect the command line output to the clipboard
 
Sometimes, I would like to post some topics on the forum, and the contents of the topics come from the output the command line output.

Usually, I would run the command, and copy the output to the clipboard and then paste it here. I think it is a efficient less way to do the job and I am looking for if Bash has such kind of the feature.

Use xsel or xclip.

For example, highlight some text and then run:

xsel -o | xsel -i -b

This will copy the contents of the highlight buffer straight to the clipboard. You can create an alias or button shortcut for it if you use it often.
