Access the clipboard and do not care if the OS is Linux, MacOS or Windows.
You have Clipboard.copy,
Have fun ;)
On Linux, you can choose, from which clipboard you want to paste, default is PRIMARY.
copy copies to all clipboards in Clipboard::CLIPBOARDS.
Windows Encoding note
If you paste with 1.9, the Clipboard encoding will be translated to your Encoding.default_external.
If you paste with 1.8, it will fallback to CP850 encoding. Copying with 1.8 will fallback to the clip utility, which is installed by default since Vista
Linux: xclip, you can install it on debian/ubuntu with sudo apt-get install xclip
Don't depend on xclip
Feel free to report bugs or to implement one of the Todo entries ;)
