Version 1.1 - March 11, 1993
Copyright (c) 1993, Brian Sawert
Purpose:CLIPCAP.EXE is a DOS filter program that captures the
DOS standard output and copies it to the Windows
clipboard. CLIPCAP is run from within a Windows DOS
box or from the Windows command line. CLIPCAP behaves
like the DOS MORE command, taking its input from
redirected DOS program output or a redirected text
Usage:[command |] CLIPCAP [< file]
Examples:MYPROG | CLIPCAP
copies the output from the DOS program MYPROG to the
CLIPCAP < TEXT.DOC
copies the contents of the file "TEXT.DOC" to the
copies the user's typed input, terminated by a
CONTROL-Z (F6), to the Windows clipboard.
Notes:CLIPCAP runs from the DOS prompt under Windows 3.0 or
above. Windows must run in 386 Enhanced mode for the
clipboard to be available to DOS programs.
CLIPCAP captures only text output or files. Binary
data is not supported.
The Windows command line (the Run... option under the
Program Manager File menu) does not support output
redirection. To run CLIPCAP from the command line,
you must invoke the DOS command processor. For
COMMAND /C MYPROG | CLIPCAP
runs COMMAND.COM to properly redirect the output from
the MYPROG program to CLIPCAP. If you run a batch
file containing a CLIPCAP command, you do not need
this special syntax.
When viewing captured output in the Windows clipboard,
set the display options to "OEM Text" for best
CLIPCAP is copyrighted free software. You may use it
and pass it on without charge, but please include the
documentation file if you make copies of the program.
If you find CLIPCAP useful, or have any questions or
suggestions, please feel free to contact the author by
