Exclamation How can I copy a bunch of text and then paste it, all in a framebuffer console?

Let's say, all I have is a framebuffer console and a mouse that is operative in my linux environment.

So, I'm reading some good stuff in links, and I want to copy a full command right away, but, I'm using links in one console and I need to paste the command in another.

How can I accomplish this? (step by step please).

If your distribution includes the GPM daemon, then start it. GPM does exactly what your asking for, and is included with many distributions.
