You use Win32 Unix utilities and then Microsoft Windows server 2003 clip.exe program, or alternative NirCmd, sfk, clip or other similar utility to put the resulting text into Windows clipboard.
Windows XP offers no easy solution for copying the output of DOS commands to the clipboard.
You have to select Mark from the contextual menu, use the mouse to highlight text that has to be copied and then press Enter.
Some DOS veterans use the redirect operator (> or >>) that puts all the command line output to a text file which can be opened in Notepad. (Also read: "Most Useful Windows DOS Commands")
Since both the above methods involve way too many steps, we look at a simple alternative use Clip a free utility from Microsoft that is included in Windows Server 2003 resource kit but works just fine for Windows XP or Vista.
Just copy this clip.exe [14 kb] file to your Windows folder and then use it with a PIPE (|) operator in your DOS commands. Here are some examples:
dir /h | clip Copy the help manual for DIR command to the clipboard
tracert www.labnol.org | clip Trace the path from your computer to another website the output is automatically copied to the clipboard and not displayed on the screen.
netstat | clip - Check if your computer is connecting to websites without your knowledge.
The clip.exe utility can also be used to copy contents of text files to clipboard directly from the command line.
clip < C:\AUTOEXEC.bat this will copy all the text from autoexec.bat to your Windows Clipboard.

The clip.exe file comes only with the Windows 2003 or Windows Vista so I am not sure if they are distributing the original Windows file on petri.co.il or written something similar on their own.
I accomplish the same using a perl script(which has win32 extensions).
good to know about the clip.exe : now I can ask colleagues to use this technique as well (earlier it was tough to ask them to install perl just for this utility)
I use console instead of cmd. console supports the normal copy/paste
console the windows cmd replacement. link
I agree you'r using console, but I bet redirecting whole output of any command to clipboard is much easier than Manually copying.. Think over it!
Terminal - Pipe text from shell to windows cut and paste buffer using PuTTY and XMing.
echo "I'm going to paste this into WINDERS XP" | xsel -i
This is sample output - yours may be different.2010-02-08 00:23:43

Pipe text from shell to windows cut and paste buffer using PuTTY and XMing.Set up X forwarding in PuTTY, with X display location set to :0.0
Launch PuTTY ssh session.
Launch Xming. Make sure that display is set to :0.0 (this is default).
echo "I'm going to paste this into WINDERS XP" | xsel -i
will insert the string into the windows cut and paste buffer.
