Copy Text To Clipboard
Version 0.3 is out (the project is updated after 3.5 years! :))
Description ( Top
This simple console application copies the first parameter to the Windows clipboard. If no parameter given, then an empty string is copied to the clipboard, i.e. everything is erased on the clipboard. This application is based on another project of mine -- CopyPathToClipboard -- but even simpler.
What you type:
What is copied to the clipboard:
|c:\video>ctc.exe||(everything is erased on the clipboard)|
Download ( Top )
You can download the source and its components here.
Install ( Top )
Just unpack it. You get the source (I used Dev-C++ during the development) and the binary too (ctc.exe). Copy the binary to a directory that is in your path, and then you can use it any time.
Options ( Top )
This is the output of the /h option:
ctc.exe: copies the first parameter as a text to the Windows clipboard Usage: e:\utils\ctc.exe [option] [parameter] where option can be: /h , /help get this help /u , /un change space to underline (_) /uc change to uppercase /lc change to lowercase /c capitalize the first character /ca capitalize all words /e , /ec cut off the last extension v0.3, written by Laszlo Szathmary, email@example.com
Version history ( Top )
|v0.3||February 2007||Switches are now processed in chain. A dear user, John Potelle suggested this.
Until now the program terminated when conflicting parameters were used. Now they are
applied in chain. It may be "more friendly for scripting if the scripter has stored 'defaults' for
ctc which could be overridden on the
script's command line".
A new switch (/ca) is added to capitalize all words.
|v0.2||August 2003||some useful options added (see the output of the /h option)|
|v0.1 again||May 2003||code rewritten|
|v0.1||about 1999||First implementation. It was all very nice, but I lost the source :( I don't know how it happened, I always make backups. The binary remained, so I could use it, but then I had the idea to make it open source, but without source it's quite difficult. So I had to rewrite it.|

A friend of mine, Gabor helped me in the first implementation coding the copyStringToClipboard() function. Unfortunately this code got lost :(
John Potelle pushed me to make v0.3.
