    clip board access

    In windows and sometimes X-Windows
    you may copy strings or images into a clipboard owned by the system
    usually ctrl+c
    and to paste
    ctrl+v
    in C, how do you access this clip board?

    you should have a clipboard in your compiler.
    Or is that not what your looking for?
