Copy and paste in a terminal

LatestHackingNews has an article about Linux commands, one of which involves using the keyboard to copy and paste. The article indicates that ctrl-c will copy whatever's highlighted to the clipboard. This isn't accurate in that ctrl-c does what you expect it to do (interrupt a running process). The proper key sequence is shift-ctrl-c (paste is shift-ctrl-v).
