Command-C, command-V. It works in the terminal just like in the rest of your apps. It's one of the things that I actually prefer about the Mac that I'm working on nowadays.

OSX sandboxed apps cannot look outside of their own directories. However, when the user chooses a file via the "Open" dialog, the application is given a handle that allows it to open just that particular file. Sandboxing really is the solution to this kind of mess...
