== pbcopy.vim - vim interaction with the Mac OS X pasteboard

This is a tiny plugin to enable communication with the Mac
OS X pasteboard from Vim when running inside a program (such
as tmux) which cannot directly interact with the pbcopy
command.

== HOW TO

# Make sure 'remote login' is enabled under Sharing in
  System Preferences
# Yank or delete some text using normal vim commands
# Call :PBCopy
# Paste into your favourite OS X application

# Copy from your favourite OS X application
# Call :PBPaste
# Put into vim as normal

== KNOWN ISSUES/TODO

* This plugin doesn't work on OS X 10.5.8. 
  For details, see https://discussions.apple.com/message/11257647?messageID=11257647#11257647?messageID=11257647
  If you're running that version, you could try https://github.com/ChrisJohnsen/tmux-MacOSX-pasteboard
  but I have been told that even this doesn't work. Oh, the humanity!

== ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

* Seth Milliken (@sethmilliken) who told me about the
  workaround. All I've done is take his code snippet and
  make a plugin from it.
* Notch8 for the ability to paste as well as copy. It is indeed nice to have symmetry in life.
