A simple method of note taking in the Terminal
Authored by: bluehz on May 06, '03 12:26:09PM

This has become for me a roundabout method of copy/paste
between Aqua and X11. I use Apple X11 but not Quartz-qm,
instead I prefer Blackbox. Something is broken in Apple's X11
that it will not copy/paste between Aqua and Apple X11 if you
are not using Quartz-qm (and yes I know the special key cmds).
So what I have done is setup this "notes" cmd then in X11, I
just open an XTerm and tail -f ~/Documents/notes.txt. Now if I
want to copy something to X11 - I just "note" it and then switch
to X11 and there it is available for paste....
