I'm not sure what format you are pulling in but if your tabular data can be read as a text file try this.

My question was in the context of ad-hoc calculations, using data quickly pulled out of other programs running on my desktop---cut from one application, paste into Octave, calculate/plot. I wanted to avoid having to go through other programs like editors and such.

Thanks to Mike for pointing out this Readline functionality that works great in all environments I care about:

Yes, you are looking for the readline option "enable-bracketed-paste".

    set enable-bracketed-paste on

to your ~/.inputrc and it should be taken care of automatically if you
are using any common terminal emulator that supports this feature.
