To copy the content of a
text file into the clipboard
This page hosts a small and useful software that can copy the content
of a text file into the clipboard. This software may even be launched
automatically at system startup, in order to get the desired text
into the clipboard at each session start.
This software and the related source code
is freely downloadable ad useable.
- Download the executable (no need for installation:
just uncompress and copy it into a folder on PC): (txt2clip.zip
- 13 kB)
- If you are interested in knowing how this
software works internally, or if you are willing to modify or
enhance it, you may download its source code (a C compiler for
Windows is required): (txt2clip-src-1.0.zip
- 4 kB)
After downloading and uncompressing the software, just create an
icon (a "shortcut") that invokes the executable and the name of
the file whose content is to be copied into the clipboard: in the
"command line" edit control you can write, for example, something
C:\Program Files\txt2clip\txt2clip.exe c:\gnogno.txt
Such a shortcut can be even be created in the "Startup" folder,
if you need that the content of the text file ("gnogno.txt" in the
above example) is to be copied into the clipboard at each system
This software is released under the DWYWWIECYWI
(Do Whatever You Want With It Except Claiming You Wrote It) license.
This software is a very simple and non-intrusive
product; anyway, it's impossible to guarantee that it will work
properly in all cases. In other words, this software is supplied
as-is, without any warranty of any kind, implicit or explicit. I

come from its utilization.
