- Copy “string” through command line 2 answers
How do i write data from the Command-line into the copy paste buffer? I see the programs xsel, and xclip and they look fine, but i would prefer a command line option. Can i redirect terminal output to the buffer some how? What is the technical name for the copy paste buffer?
I use mate for the desktop environment. The reason I want to be able to do this without installing anything is I want to be able to write scripts to use this function even on systems where i am not an administrator... i know i can compile in my home directory, but i would still prefer a standard output method. I wouldnt mind writing a bit of c-code to do it either.
I am still not certain, perhaps the copy paste buffers are just frame buffers?
