Selecting in commandline?



Could anyone tell my why it is not possible to select text from the command line?

For example I tend to “Shift+Home->backspace/delete” often to clear a text quickly but in the command line this does not work, as does trying to select text in the command line to copy text from the command line.

It is not anything urgent, but I was wondering why it is not possible.


I usually just select it with the mouse and Ctrl+C… --Mitch


Mm, I see, mouse selection does indeed work, well that is at least a work around for getting text out there : ), And for canceling Esc works too, but I just catch myself trying to use arrowkeys etc. to correct spelling errors which only ends up in moving the camera >_<
