I was wondering if anyone on the list knew of a Linux equivalent to
pbcopy from OS X?:
I've been finding myself copy-and-pasting text files recently (CVs for
sites that want a text version), and thought if I could use pbcopy, this
would be a lot easier:
cat cv.txt | pbcopy
than using doing a less on the terminal and lots of scrolling, selecting
and middle pasting, or opening an editor and doing a "select all"...
Is there a similar "cbcopy" for Linux, or is the clipboard insanity of
Linux preventing this?
