Yes, of course it would. (Unless you are afraid that some mail readers
might screw up, say, a bash script by inserting line breaks.) I brought
up pastebin here for the (maybe hypothetical) case that John can't
easily write the data to his hard disk (let's say it is all NTFS) or a
USB stick. All he would need to transfer the output via pastebin is
working internet and a browser. It might be the method that is most
easily implemented, depending on which of his hardware is supported by
the live CDs.
