In the Terminal I can mark text with the mouse, copy it with cmd-c and paste it with cmd-v. This is all I need and it works great, even within emacs. Which is important for me, since I'm still not very comfortable with it.
The only problem is, I have to use the mouse! How can I select the text with keyboard only? Is there really no solution?
It seems like someone else had a similar question, though the unsatisfying answers (for me) suggest otherwise. select copy and paste in terminal mac or ubuntu without using mouse
PS: I use Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and emacs 23.3.1
