Easy paste to Terminal

This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

Pasting text into the Terminal is just a mouse click and drag away. Simply select the text (in StyledEdit, e-mail, anything) and drag it into the Terminal. When dragging text out of the app’s window isn’t possible (as with NetPositive or Gobe’s Productive), copy the selected text to the clipboard (Alt+C). To paste it back to the Terminal prompt just hit mouse button 2 or 3.
