Select and paste does work in Terminal
Authored by: mike-c on May 03, '06 08:37:33PM

What you describe works to some extent in 10.4's Terminal. Select some text, then press button 3 (the scrollwheel), and the text is pasted.

I don't know when they added this feature, but I'm glad they did. One limitation, though, is that it works only in a single terminal window. You can't select text in one terminal window and then paste it an another with the middle mouse button. (You obviously can't paste the selected text into another application, either.) A more positive way to say this is that selecting text doesn't overwrite what you had in the clipboard. :-)
