CLipBuddy is a free clipboard management tool designed to allow you to copy multiple items, and
iterate through them with ease.
This tool is especially useful with programming, as it offers many different uses for its simpler major
For example, you can...
- Back up a piece of code, or even a paragraph in an paper you are writing,
by selecting all and copying. CLipbuddy will store the entire copied selection, which you can
access later at the push of a button or the click of a mouse.
- Have an 'undo' function for your clipboard. Ever accidentally hit copy instead of paste?
Now you can undo it by copying the previous item.
- Copy key points from several documents, and look through them later. In the same way, keep
track of multiple code snippets: Window style flags in Win32 come to mind for me.
- Quickly rearrange a page with no fear of forgetting anything. Cut sections of your page with ctrl-x,
then use CLipBuddy to paste them in the right order.
Things you copy are immediately saved to your hard drive in a fast-access format for later recall.
Even if your computer shuts down, you can get the last item you copied.
Unlike others of its sort, CLipBuddy (in addition to being totally free) will save any kind of data
on the clipboard, not just text or images. Take, for example, autoshapes in Microsoft Word ®.
Though most clipBoard tools wouldn't copy anything but text or image, CLipBuddy copies it all, and
correctly restores it to the clipboard for later.
CLipBuddy can also remember which files you have copied, but BE CAREFUL: when you copy a file, Windows only
places the file's location on the clipboard, not the entire file itself. So if you delete the file, trying
to paste it back will make only make Windows throw a File not Found error.
Despite how useful CLipBuddy is, please keep in mind that this was developed as a side project to practice for ENIGMA.
That said, I may or may not offer much support or updates on this project. It
all depends on the feedback I get.
There are many features I haven't named here, but I'd like to let users discover them on their own. I may upload docs at some point.
The project is open source, os I am hoping I can depend on others to help me out.
