How do you Copy and Paste in XTerm

Besides the mouse buttons, are there hot keys to copy and paste in xterm?

The answer is DEPENDANT on which implementation of X you have.

FOR EXAMPLE:   In Gnome, found on RedHat and other distributions, COPY is Shift-Ctrl-C, and PASTE if Shift-Ctrl-V.

Your mileage may vary, again- this all depends on which "X" implementation and desktop manager you are running.

Hope this helps, --kcb

You can highlight what you want to copy with your mouse and click right and left mouse button in the same time to the location you want to paste.

Nope. A litle explanation is in order.

There are actually 2 clipboards, one is the X clipboard, and the other is the DE clipboard.

You copy to the X clipboard by selecting the text with the mouse, and you paste by clicking the middle mouse button (both buttons on 2-button mice)

The DE clipboard (Gnome or KDE most often) have their own behavior and their applications usually use Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V like windows. Xterm is a pure X application, so unless you have a windows manager configured to grab the keystrokes, you don't have any hotkeys for it.
