Paste from X app into bash script?

All around these boards, there are scripts, PKGBUILDs, etc posted by various archers, usually as [CODE]. I can't find a way to copy them into a usable file.

Any suggestions, or do I have to manually retype them?

Excellent kill - thanks.

Works in nano and xedit too, by the way.

Re: Paste from X app into bash script?

If you use "vi" as your editor of choice, a handy thing to do when cutting/pasting is this:

:set paste

Then, copy and paste whatever you want into the open "vi" file.  I use the middle mouse button for everything.  After you are done,

:set nopaste

* That will resolve a lot of formatting problems.

Re: Paste from X app into bash script?

terminal copy/paste mini-HOWTO:

copying from a terminal: left-click highlight what you wish to copy. it is automatically copied to X's buffer

pasting to a terminal: move the cursor where you'd like and middle click

how I do it:
* oh, nice PKGBUILD, let me try it
* mkdir <pkgname>
* nano PKGBUILD (doesn't exist)
* copy from firefox
* middle click in nano
* <C-O> <C-X> makepkg -cf

nano -w PKGBUILD is safer ("Disable wrapping of long lines.").
or add:
set nowrap
to /etc/nanorc
