pbcopy & pbpaste released for Windows
Your favourite OSX command line clipboard manipulation libraries pbcopy and pbpaste were ported over to Windows last night. They are two console applications that pipe the clipboard into/out of STDIN/STDOUT
- pbcopy copies the standard input and places it in the clipboard.
- pbpaste copies the data from the clipboard and writes it to the standard output.
Installation is done via Chocolatey:
# cinst pasteboard
To copy your SSH key to the clipboard:
# cd .ssh # type id_rsa.pub | pbcopy
To write the contents of your clipboard to a file:
# cd C:\tmp # pbpaste > output.txt
