a Mini vMac Extra


clipout-1.1.0.zip (info) a zipped hfs disk image and checksum file. The disk image can be mounted with Mini vMac. Includes source code.

(There is also an Alpha version in development, see below.)

ClipOut is a Desk Accessory to use in Mini vMac 3.0.0 or later to export the clipboard of the emulated computer to the clipboard of the real computer.

When ClipOut is opened, a small window very briefly appears. After it disappears the clipboard has been exported. (So be sure to wait until after the window has appeared and disappeared before switching to another application from Mini vMac, or the clipboard will not be exported.)

ClipOut in provided in two formats. The file 'ClipOut' is a Font/DA Mover suitcase for use in System 6 and earlier, containing a desk accessory named '5-ClipOut'. (Use Font/DA Mover to install DAs in System 6 and earlier.) The file '5-ClipOut' is a System 7 style desk accessory, with icon and version resources. The actual desk accessory code in both versions is identical.

ClipOut is intended to be used with DAFKEY, to provide a keyboard shortcut. That is why the name of the desk accessory starts with '5-'.

If you would like to import the clipboard, see ClipIn, the opposite of ClipOut.

If you would like to export entire files, see ExportFl.

Alpha version in development

The binary of the Alpha version is so far identical to the stable version above, but the source code is different, being ported to ReAsm.
