Does putclip exist for Linux? i.e. can stdout go to the clipboard?
The Cygwin environment (a Linux-like environment for Windows) has a command named putclip.exe, which copies it's stdin to the Windows clipboard.
I would love to be able to make the output of a GNU/Linux command in a terminal go directly to the X clipboard so I can paste it into the message editor right here, or into another app, such as a text editor.
$ grep ip_forward /etc/sysctl.conf | putclip
Then in the message editor, CTRL-V pastes the result.
Can it be done?
