The Clipboard package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

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 wherever you want.

Now, if you type:

$ modifyClipboardString reverse

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

$ getClipboardString
"!dlroW ,olleH"

A simple library for a simple purpose: to set, get and modify the system clipboard.


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