I have copied something from Internet and I want that copied text to get copied to a file. But how can I copy that text without using mouse or any command like Ctrl+V. I want to do this from terminal. How can I do that in Ubuntu 12.04?

cat > /path/to/file.txt
after this the terminal waits user input, so you can paste from your clipboard:
Ctrl + Shift + v
Then press Enter
Ctrl + c
