Hello Experts,

I would like to copy a huge log file from my AIX box to notepad.... if I cat it, it takes too long to select it to copy it...

is there a way to send my 'cat' results to my clipboard?

thx for your help...

Hi epifanio,

which terminal emulator do you use?

If it's PuTTY you can easily configure a session log which will contain your output. e.g. the one of "cat".

In the PuTTY configuration window, select "Session - Logging" on the left.
On the right choose "Printable Output" and enter a filename and path of your choice.

Click "Apply". Now run your "cat" command, then go back to the Configuration window and turn off logging by selecting "None".

Edit the logfile using the Notepad. Remove unwanted parts of the output (e.g. shell prompts) and you're done.
