Copy/Paste works on the standard terminals too, but remembering the difference between each of them is tedious. 😉

Oh right! I didn't know that, and didn't think to look. I'm new to this Windows lark, been using FVWM & co. for about 20 years. Thanks for the info.



I'll have a look at the terminals everyone else has suggested too, for copy/paste if nothing else.

Does anyone have any sort of solution for Gforth to run under Windows with a terminal window of adjustable font and colors, please? Or even fixed 14pt font in high contrast would do.
