fish_clipboard_copy - copy text to the system’s clipboard



foo | fish_clipboard_copy


The fish_clipboard_copy function copies text to the system clipboard.

If stdin is not a terminal (see isatty), it will read all input from there and copy it. If it is, it will use the current commandline, or the current selection if there is one.

It is bound to Control+X by default.

fish_clipboard_copy works by calling a system-specific backend. If it doesn’t appear to work you may need to install yours.

Currently supported are:

  • pbcopy

  • wl-copy using wayland

  • xsel and xclip for X11

  • clip.exe on Windows.
