Re: Bash shell

Hello everyone!

I am VERY new to Cygwin, though not to Linux.
I use the bash shell a LOT and was wondering how do I get it so that I can
copy and paste something from a windows window (such as an IP address) into
the bash shell window. For example I want to use the whois functionality of
the bash shell for an IP I have in a windows window. I cannot seem to copy
and paste anything.

I know that for the Xfree you can use the -clipboard option, but I rarely
use the X system...mostly just the bash shell.

That includes the FAQ, User's Guide, and email list archives.  In this case,
you wouldn't have needed to go beyond the FAQ.  There's a nice entry about
this in there.  See:
