Exactly! xclip is perfect!!!!!
xclip - Linux / UNIX Command line clipboard grabber
Copy output of the following command to clipboard:
$ sort -n -k 3, -k 2 file.txt | xclip
Send data.txt contains to the clipboard, enter:
$ cat data.txt | xclip
Put the contents of the selection into a file.
$ xclip -o > file.txt

I want to grab stuff while I am surfing net and dont want to open a file to copy it to.
I can set up a hotkey to
xclip -o -> massage data -> pipe it to xclip
massage data with a perl script and then
cat codified data| xclip -o
and I have modified data in clipboard
and then paste modified data where I want.
Perl - the language for those who are "lazy impatient and have hubris"
