The Clipboard package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

/Clipboard/ is a library for easily interfacing with the system clipboard with additional unicode support. Currently, only in a Windows system.

For example, if you type:

> setClipboardString "Hello, World!"

Then you have @\"Hello, World!\"@ available to be pasted where you want.

Now, if you type:

> modifyClipboardString reverse

You will have @\"!dlroW ,olleH\"@ in your clipboard. So:

>>> getClipboardString "!dlroW ,olleH"

Changes from last version:

* New documentation with examples.

I'm so sorry, but this library only works on Windows. Contributions are welcome! :)
