iTerm2 as my terminal client in Mac OS X. On the local system I can use
pbpaste to transfer data between the system clipboard and the terminal, but of course this doesn't work when you're ssh'ed to another machine.
Is there some way which I can take the result of a command and copy it to the clipboard automatically? Perhaps an applescript to grab the text on the
iTerm windows, then get the next to last line?
For instance, if I wanted to copy the current working directory:
pwd, then use the mouse to select the text, and then press
command + c.
Is there any better / faster / automatic way of doing this? I'm not looking for a bulletproof solution that would work for every command (eg: might not work when there is a huge scrollback) - I'm just looking for something to make this task that I do quite often a little less tedious.
I'm looking into using
screen to do this, but I'm still not sure if it is possible.
