this command line enables you to copy the standard input from terminal window to your clipboard enabling you to paste it to other applications.
pbcopy on a mac enables you to copy the standard input from terminal window to your clipboard enabling you to paste it to other applications.
You can replicate pbcopy on ubuntu by utilising a similar tool called xclip which does exactly the same. However its syntax is a little too verbose and I prefer to use OS X pbcopy command.
If you haven’t previously installed xclip simply run the following command in your terminal window:
sudo apt-get install xclip -y
Edit your BASH settings file using your favorite text editor.
Then create an alias for pbcopy and pbpaste:
alias pbcopy=’xclip -selection clipboard’
alias pbpaste=’xclip -selection clipboard -o’
Close and save the file then just refresh your bash to import your new settings
pbcopy < /etc/resolv.conf
