Pull / Scrape / Recieve contents of clipboard WIN

December 11, 2012 | 11:41 am

Hi,
I have a third party app sending text content to the clipboard. The content is updated/changes regularly – or rather at non-specific intervals.
I’d like this text to be the subject of some regexp arguments, and then ultimately get pushed as OSC message using udpsend and OSCroute
Can max get access to this text content on the windows platform?
According to these forums, it seems the shell command can do this on OSX (and there’s even a clipboard external i found), but i’m having a hard time on PC (no jokes please…)
thanks for reading :-)
