xpdf(1), version 3.00, can highlight and copy text
into the X11 clipboard(? or whatever it is called);
e.g., here is some text I just so copy-and-pasted in
the usual manner from the PDF version of my résumé:
Innovative, experienced O/S internals software engineer concerned with process and

no comments that I am aware of. and (as I just
discovered!), a middle-button click in the lower
toolbar causes a segfault. ;-(
