How to copy text from info files displayed using "pinfo" command ?

Jump to solution

Info files can displayed using either the 'info' or 'pinfo' command. I realized that one cannot highlight text within the "pinfo", yet on the other hand one can highlight the text within the "info" command.

In case you are using the gnome terminal, once highlighted you can perform any available action within the 'info' command.  The same cannot be done for the 'pinfo' command.

Has anybody tried to highlight and copy text from 'pinfo' ?

pinfo is a ncurses application (similar to links/lynx/w3m, etc). That means you can use shift + mouse to select the text. Once you've selected the text you can copy it with control+shift+c , then paste with control+shift+v.
