Command-Line tools and the Windows Clipboard


Matt Williams' quest for a tool to extend the Windows Clipboard when working at the Command-Line seems to be over. To quote Matt:

CLCL seems to be exactly what I was looking for. I tried Shell Toys XP and while it has a clipboard management tool, it also has a boatload of other stuff. I just want the clipboard tool. Plus ShellToysXP is very slow, taking about 2 seconds for the clipboard+ tool to show up. CLCL comes up in about a third of a second. ClipX seems to do just as well, but since I tried CLCL first, I might stick with it.

Thanks to the following people who suggested CLCL: Alex Chernjayeff and Jonah. Edwards

And since ClipX seems just as good, thanks goes to:  Anders and m.karmack.

The full list of tools suggested is:

  1. CLCL
  2. ClipX
  3. ClipMate
  4. Shell Toys XP
  5. Yankee Clipper

Thanks everyone!

    CLC seems slick, I will have to try it out. I have an free tool that I use to copy the path of a file to the clipboard from a right click. If you work alot with the file system then this is a must. You can find it on my website, it is called Goat.
