!?!?! *

Highlight some text in an xterm.
Run a nice safe command like:

  $ cat > /dev/null

Press the middle mousebutton.  The text you had highlighted will get
spat out (in this case, "cat"-ed to /dev/null) just as if you typed
it by hand.

Is _that_ what you meant won't work?  And did you really mean Xterm
and not, say, Virtual Console (eg, "Alt-F1" thru "Alt-F6" on most
Linux boxes).

If you DID mean a Virtual Console, then you should fire up GPM
(from gpm(8): "a cut and paste utility and mouse server for virtual consoles")


* - One day ask me to explain the head-shaking and sound effects that
    that string is supposed to portray ;)
