similar to windows, but use the command (apple) key instead of Ctrl

Copy - command + C
Paste - command + V

just remembered, if what you want to copy/paste is on the same page/window you have open, you can select the text you want to copy and drag it to where you want to paste it (pretty cool feature).

He just said how to do it. Just do the same thing you would in Windows, except use the Command key instead of the Control key. The command key is the key right to the left of the spacebar - it has an Apple logo and a little cloverleaf symbol on it. Copy is Command-C, cut is Command-X, and paste is Command-V.

You can also choose the commands from the Edit menu if you like.

Ticking sound coming from a .pkg package? Don't let the .bom go off! Inspect it first with Pacifist. Macworld - five mice!

You might like this .. I sure do

iClip
http://inventive.us/iClip/

With iClip, you quickly store, organize and access bits of information that just aren't practical to save as entire documents. It allows you to quickly copy & paste and drag & drop clippings to and from its multiple "clipping bins" so that you can easily access them in the applications you're using. The clippings can be of various types such as text, pictures, Internet locations, sounds, and more. Clippings can be organized into unlimited groups called "clipping sets" to help you keep all of your clippings neatly arranged. Since the Scrapbook application that was in older Mac OS versions isnt a part of Mac OS X, iClip can conveniently serve as a replacement for it. You stay focused on the tasks you're accomplishing while saving time and streamlining your workflow.

You want to copy the URL from Safari into your IRC client?

Right-click the link (the number) and choose 'Copy Link to Clipboard' - if you only have one mouse button hold the 'control' button on your keyboard while clicking.



then paste with Command V into your IRC Client.

or is this the problem:?



Here's another feature of right-clicking you might like:

It's not working because Windows is doing something non-standard to begin with.

Just connect to the server manually and make note of the channel you want to connect to. In IRC, just type
Code:
/join #<channel name>
Where "<channel name>" is the name of the channel (without the quotes or brackets).
"Yields a falsehood when preceded by its quotation" yields a falsehood when preceded by its quotation.

Not sure what's going on here, but it might be possible that mIRC has installed an IE plugin which allows it to catch that link and handle it in mIRC.

If this is the case, perhaps you could contact the author of Snak or one of the other Mac IRC clients and ask for a similar feature.

Holy crap. This has to be one of the most bizarre threads I've seen in a long time.
I'm amazed anyone can understand just what our young friend is saying.

that website is using code that is specific to windows. You will not be able to click on the link and then paste the xdcc message.

I dunno... after reading this thread I feel like I've got a hangover without having even drunk anything.

Then again, as Vyvian said when asked "What's the best thing for a hangover?":

"Drinking heavily the night before."

I think it's even sadder that you deliberately went out of your way to bump an 8 year old thread just to point out the bad grammar of the thread starter.

And it's also sad that I'm responding to you.

And yet funny at the same time.

How do you even bump an 8 year old thread? I wouldn't think that was even possible?
Also I still have no idea what the guy was trying to do.

The 2004 was a hint as to the age of this thread.

Cmd-X/C/V/Z were introduced as standard commands with the Apple Lisa in 1983.

The Apple key hasn't been on Mac keyboards since about 2008.

FWIW, the Apple logo wasn't added to the command key until about 1993.

Actually it was added with the first ADB keyboard, which shipped with the Mac II and Mac SE in early 1987:



Supposedly the idea was to use the same keyboard for the Apple IIGS which used the Apple key frequently.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
