Cygwin/Xterm scroll while selecting text
Sun May 7 19:11:00 GMT 2006
Yeah, Thomas is right. I personally don't like the scrollbars, I just
use the scrollwheel on my mouse to scroll up and down text in xterm.
So my method for selecting a large amount of text is:
- scroll to location of beginning text
- right click once on exactly where i want to begin selection
- scroll down with scrollwheel until end text is reached
- right click again exactly where i want to end selection
Of course, in conjunction with right-clicking, you could alternatively
use the scrollbar ;-)
