How to cut & paste from a console ?


I am run WindowMaker as a window manager.

From most applications, it is possible to make a cut & paste using CTRL C and CTRL V.

But i can't do that from a console.

It would be nice, since when i experience troubles, i'd like to copy errors messages directly to a thread in LQ if necessary, and not rewriting it !
