Simple problem: I have a JSON file that is used for snapshot serialization of a JS-based VM.
It contains a shitload of data and every single editor crashes while trying to open it, except vim. But, vim, of course - can't right click and copy the whole file into the clipboard.
When trying out vim-gtk, vim-nox, vim-gnome etc., they don't offer a proper GTK GUI for Gnome3. They all missed updating the library to GTK3, so I have no menu, no mouse, no context menus etc. there.
So I can't open the file with any GTK based editor (mousepad, leafpad, geany, gedit, etc. - all will crash, trust me). I tried out every single editor that was mentioned on Google Fu lists, forum posts etc. Really, all will crash because you can't simply deactivate syntax highlighting.
I simply want the text content of the whole file in the clipboard, so I can paste it into the Web Browser of my choice.
How to achieve that?
PS: No, I won't install whole KDE for a simple clipboard task.
