Dear all,

Is there a way to do cut/paste of text in a NetBSD (pcvt) console?

In Linux there's a program called 'gpm' which lets you do this;
I think you need to build some support for it in the kernel, besides
running the 'gpm' daemon.

In the NetBSD packages collection, I've seen a package called 'dt'
which can do this, but not for the i386 port.  Is there another way
to do cutting/pasting of text in a text console in NetBSD/i386?

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide-
