- vim has access to X (you run it on your local machine or from
ssh -X or something similar)
- is compiled with X support (check with vim --version | grep +X11)
- and you :set mouse=a
then you can paste by middle clicking in vim (not shift-middle click),
which should paste the text as is...
The difference is that with shift-middle click, or with vim that cannot
talk to X, the terminal sends the selected text to vim as normal input
(as if you would type it) and thus its get indented/formated/etc..
If you have mouse=a set and vim can talk to X, when you middle click
it will ask X for the selection and insert it as is without any
