XP Perl Replacement for "Send to Clipboard as Filename"

For some reason, XP powertools is missing one of my favourites - the ability to right-click on a file, and send the path and name to the clipboard.

So, I added the following to a shortcut I called "Send to Clipboard" in my SendTo folder:

C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe -e "use Win32::Clipboard;Win32::Clipboard($ARGV[0 +]);"
C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe -e "use Win32::Clipboard;Win32::Clipboard($ARGV[0

    Great! I love it!

    I used wperl instead of perl so the command window doesn't flash at me.

    C:\Perl\bin\wperl.exe -e "use Win32::Clipboard;Win32::Clipboard($ARGV[ +0]);"

      And I love wperl - never knew about it before. Thanks!

      map{$a=1-$_/10;map{$d=$a;$e=$b=$_/20-2;map{($d,$e)=(2*$d*$e+$a,$e**2 -$d**2+$b);$c=$d**2+$e**2>4?$d=8:_}1..50;print$c}0..59;print$/}0..20

        wperl is particularly useful if you are writing gui apps (such as Perl/Tk).

        Down side, any error/warning messages disappear into aether surrounding your computer.

        Usually I use perl while coding/debugging, and wperl for release

      Excellent. You can even copy multiple file names by using

      C:\Perl\bin\wperl.exe -MWin32::Clipboard -e Win32::Clipboard(join(qq(\ +r\n),@ARGV))
