    What exactly is a "putty server"? I use a SSH client named PuTTY, but I was not aware that there was a corresponding server. But what exactly is stopping you from copying the code?

    I'm thinking PuTTY is the program he's using to connect to a machine (server, maybe) called onyx somewhere on his campus. I haven't used PuTTY -- does it act like a dos box (making it hard to copy/paste out of)?

    (And even if you have the file stored on the other machine, can you not use some sftp client to get it off that machine onto yours?)

    it is like a dos box and im so used to windows that copying and pasting just isnt as easy. i can highlight my code and right click the mouse and it copies the highlighted part to the area of where the cursor is i just cant find anything on how to copy the screen and paste it to windows

    1. On the server, open the source file in a text editor, or use cat.
    2. Select the code displayed in the command prompt, and press CTRL + C.
    3. Paste the code into an editor of your choice on your local computer.

    If you have SSH access, it's likely that you have sftp access as well. Next time, instead of cat'ing the code and copy pasting it, you can just download the files onto your own machine.
    I think putty comes with a program called psftp that you can use to do this.
    I copied it from the last program in which I passed a parameter, which would have been pre-1989 I guess. - esbo

    It can be troublesome to go through the process of downloading the entire file just to copy one portion of it when you already have it displayed. On the other hand, it may be easier to code on the local computer, and then upload as needed.
