clipedit man page

clipedit — Edit clipboard contents in one swoop.

Motivation

Eliminating the "Open editor, edit stuff, copy back to the clipboard" shuffle.

Note

If for some reason the clipboard contents changes during the edit session, you will be prompted to choose between 1) the original Clipboard contents, 2) the new Clipboard contents, and 3) the result of your edits (which is the default if you just hit "Enter").

Configuration

If you don't want the script to use "vim" to edit, set either the environment variable $VISUAL or $EDITOR.
