wcopy

copy from a specified file or standard input to the Windows clipboard 

Command


SYNOPSIS

wcopy [-eqr] [-t timeout] [file]


DESCRIPTION

wcopy copies text from a file (or from standard input if no file is specified) to the Windows clipboard.

Options

-e 

empties the clipboard instead of copying to it.

-q 

suppresses error codes (quiet mode). Normally, error codes are printed to standard error.

-r 

keeps trying to access the clipboard if it is not accessible at first. Without this option, wcopy issues an error and exits if it cannot access the clipboard.

-t timeout 

is similar to the -r option except that wcopy stops trying to access the clipboard after timeout seconds. If you specify a timeout of less than one second, a default of one second is used.


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

TK_USE_CTRLD_AS_CONSOLE_EOF 

When set, CTRL-D is used as the EOF (end-of-file) character when the input is from the console.


DIAGNOSTICS

0

1

2

3

4
