Hello Brian,

I don't have an account on a big-endian but the command you are
looking for is xclip.
I installed it with `sudo apt-get install xclip` on my ubuntu 9.10.

to copy to the primary clipboard (paste with middle click) use it like this :
    echo "hello" | xclip

or to copy to the the manual copy clipboard (so you can paste with Ctrl-v) use :
    echo "hello" | xclip -sel clip
