Hello, I found that GAP <> document the same problems.

Here the data I gathered from the GAP documentation:


   The ^-key cannot be entered.
          This is a problem if you are running a keyboard driver for some
          non-english languages. These drivers catch the ^ character to
          produce the French circumflex accent and do not pass it
          properly to GAP. No fix is known.
   Cut and Paste does not work
          See for a remedy.
If you manage to make the Cut and Paste work with gp, please let us know!
