Copying to Clipboard in Mac OS X Terminal

In case you want to copy the entire content of a file to clipboard, here is what you can do conveniently.

$ cat some_file.txt | pbcopy

This command will copy the standard output to the clipboard. Since the cat command pipes the file's text to standard output, pbcopy will copy it into clipboard.

That's it!
