is it possible to copy a text selection to the X clipboard? Right now

cumbersome, some kind of wrapper or macro would be handy.

"writebuf" can write the contents of the paste buffer to a specified

With xsel, xclip, xcb and friends and maybe a shell script which runs
several 'screen -X' commands in a row and a key bound to executing
that shell script should be possible. Maybe screen's eval command can
also help.
