Execute small bits from the clipboard in Terminal

I receive the same error 'ls: $HOME: No such file or directory' when I run the `pbpaste` command in the terminal in 10.5.8 (G5)

Use eval in front of the command to have the shell "evaluate" the command and perform the substitutions.
eval $(pbpaste)
