    Smile How do you cut and paste into a command line shell?

    The only way I know to cut n paste into a shell command line is though my mouse.
    It would sure be nice it this were doable using keyboard shortcuts such as
    (Ctrl + c , Ctrl + v) or (Shift + Delete, Shift + Insert) and selecting text using arrow keys.
    Is there any way to set this up?
    Thanks and always real glad to have this forum - Randy

    the default terminal shortcuts should be Ctrl+SHIFT+C and Ctrl+SHIFT+V

    I just tested with terminal and the above keys do work.
