Mac OSX – copy terminal output to clipboard

October 12, 2010 2 comments

Here’s a quick tip: If you want the results of some shell computation to be accessible to your clipboard (e.g. so you can paste the results into an e-mail or into some pastebin service), you can pipe the command into the `pbcopy` program.

echo "Hello world" | pbcopy
# "Hello world" is now in your clipboard

Apparently there is a way to do a similar thing on Ubuntu as well
