more specifically, use "ctrl-a [" to switch to copy mode. Then use
the cursor keys to move to the text you want to select. Use the spacebar
to mark the beginning of the selection, cursor keys to move to the end of the
selection, and spacebar to mark the end of the selection. The selected
text will be copied into the buffer. To paste this buffer, at the
current insertion point in whatever screen you choose, use "ctrl-a ]".
