Often I like to copy output from the terminal into the clipboard.
Currently I'm using the mouse. Select the text so that it is marked. Then "command" plus "c".
In a text-editor or text-processing software you can use the "shift" key (keep it pushed) together with the arrow keys for selecting text. So one needs the mouse less and can keep the hands on the keyboard.
On the terminal that doesn't work. Keeping the "shift" key pushed and pushing the arrow keys just creates this: ;2C;2B;2A;2D;2D;2D;2D;2D
Hexadecimal numbers obviously. Does anyone knows the meaning?
But my actual question is:
Can one select terminal output via keyboard?
Similar to what I have described concerning text-editors.
