No: Triple click selects the whole line including the newline.

I have whole lists of things from which I need to copy each line into  
a separate file and what I would like is a real fast smooth way, like  
option triple-click, to work the same as your:

For instance, given the "list"

text11 text12 text13 text14 text15 text16

text21 text22 text23 text24

text31 text32 text33 text34 text35 text36 text37 text38 text39


I would need to copy the first line into file 1, the second line into  
file 2, the third line into file 3, etc and copying the whole line  
including the newline would disturb these files.

Hopeful regards
