Paste clipboard is bash or shell scripts with modification.

Today I had a issue where I wanted to paste the clipboard to a shell script after removing the spaces. So, I went hunting for a way to do this. Finally I came up with this:

sudo yum install xclip

Then you can paste the clipboard content using \”xclip -o\”. So now the problem is reduced to selecting the required info and doing :

xclip -o |sed \’s/ //g\’

or

xclip -o|tr -d \’ \’
