Chris Henry Asks: Is there a more efficient way to get X11-style mouse-based, cross-application copy-and-paste for command-line use than “xinit xterm” or the like?
In some contexts, I want the ability to run screen and to copy and paste text between different windows (in the screen sense of that term, not the X11 window manager sense) using click-and-drag to copy and (ideally) middle-click to paste, as I would be able to do if I were running screen in an xterm, but don’t have any particular need for any other graphical features. Starting up an X server just to be able to do this is an option (outside of unusual circumstances), but seems like overkill. Is there a straightforward way to get this sort of simple “mouse interacting with text” behavior without using X (ideally, without X having to even be installed)?
