So this is my latest attempt at trying to get copy and paste
working in vim. When I'm using cygwin on my local machine, no problem,
I can pipe the text to copy to the clipboard. If I can get xclip
installed, I can do the same thing on a Linux box. The problem however
is when I ssh into a machine where I don't have the ability to install
xclip or xsel.
There's a patch for putty which allows you to echo text to the
printer, which is hooked up to the Windows clipboard. It works fine
from a bash console, but within vim, the echo doesn't seem to work
http://ericmason.net/2010/04/putty-ssh-windows-clipboard-integration/ How does vim handle escaped print sequences? Is there anyway to
configure it so that when an echo command is executed it sends it to
the 'printer'? When I called the function in the link shown above from
within vim, vim just output ^[ instead of the escape sequence.
It's really nice to be able to take advantage of vim's built-in
method of selection in visual mode, and sometimes the graphical
selection just isn't good enough (say the text to copy is more than
what fits on the screen) If I could just figure out how to get copy
and paste working from the machine I'm ssh'ed into to my local
machine's clipboard, I hopefully won't have to spend any more time
trying to figure out how to copy text from Vim elsewhere.
