Question Printing from terminal

Hi all!

How does one print from the terminal? I mean if I type cat readme and it displays the text or I type man. How do I print that?

Also, how would you copy and past the text on the terminal to let's say Abiword (or KWord)?

I'd love to be able to print stuff like cat /proc/pci or some of the man pages.

Check out

To copy and paste just highlight the text you want with the mouse and paste it by going to the point where you want to insert it and press the right mouse button (depends on how you set up your mouse)

Use the lpr program to print files from the command line (man lpr for details).
