How do you cut and paste from aterm?

I can select the text and I have read the man but it just says how to select the text but not how to copy it to the clipboard.

Select it by just dragging the mouse pointer over the piece text you want, then paste by clicking the second mouse button. Note that "second" mouse button is actually the middle mouse button - the right button is the third because old UNIX workstations had three button mice.

If you don't have a middle button (or wheel) you can press left and right button to paste instead. You may have to enable this in your XF86Config-4 if you don't have it enabled already.

Ok, now I get it. There really is no cut function. You just select the text and then past it where you want. That's going to make posting to this board much easier.

that would be a pretty juiced up terminal to allowing cutting from it
