Is there any way to pipe some content into screen's copy-paste buffer? Thanks!

Yes, you can use the "bufferfile" command to set it to an arbitrary textfile, and "readbuf" to effectively do a "copy".

You may also find useful: I have some switches with a crappy CLI that if you paste too much info too fast, it drops, so I typed the following commands into screen to make it work:

bufferfile /home/danm/summit48.cfg
slowpaste 120
paste .

I could have also just put these in a file and used screen's "source" command to run them all.
