Today I was writing a batch file to do make a process semi-automatic. One of the non-automatic stages is copy and pasting some text into a web interface.
“It’d be pretty cool” I thought, “if I could just add a line to my batch file saying ‘place %text% on clipboard’”
Well, it turns out someone else already thought of that!
Description: Redirects output of command line tools to the Windows clipboard. This text output can then be pasted into other programs.
Parameter List: /? Displays this help message.
Examples: DIR | CLIP Places a copy of the current directory listing into the Windows clipboard.
CLIP < README.TXT Places a copy of the text from readme.txt on to the Windows clipboard.
Cool. No more mouse highlighting just to copy the current directory name for me! ‘cd | clip’
