> Broken (and quirky): it has an absurdly limited output buffer (under a thousand lines)
The limit is actually 9999 lines.

CP uses Ctrl+C to interrupt programs similar to Unix. Therefore it moves copy to a different key in a similar way to Unix consoles like GNOME Terminal and MATE Terminal which use Shift+Ctrl+C for copy despite Ctrl+C being the standard for other applications.
