In an xterm, just use the Left Mouse Button to mark a section of text, and use the Middle Button to paste it in another window. Easy as that. On the text-mode consoles this works too, but you have to install the GPM utility first.

It depends oun your terminal.

You could also output to a file - eg:
ls -l > /tmp/filelist.txt
