in reply to Auto text format cleanup via Win32::Clipboard

Here's a Win::32 Clipboard Auto Formater boosted with Good Dr Conway's Steroids!

Text::Autoformat does a really good job at finding patterns in a non structured text, and format it properly. I use it on a daily basis (mail, documentation), along with perltidy. These two tools save me hours of painful reformatting.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Win32::Clipboard; use Text::Autoformat; my $clipboard = Win32::Clipboard(); $clipboard->Empty(); print "Text auto-format-clean when copied to the clipboard is active +.\n"; print "To exit, CNTL-C out of this window.\n"; while (1) { $clipboard->WaitForChange(); my $text = $clipboard->GetText(); next if ($text eq ''); $text = autoformat($text, {all=>1}); # The magic kicks in. $clipboard->Set($text); } exit;

Untested, but it should work (having said that, I won't be surprised that it dies horribly)
