in reply to print to clipboard

You can tie a filehandle:

#!perl -w use Win32::Clipboard; my $CLIP = Win32::Clipboard(); print "This gets printed to STDOUT\n"; tie *STDOUT, 'clippy', \$CLIP; print "This will end up into the clipboard."; untie *STDOUT; package clippy; use Tie::Handle; use vars qw(@ISA); @ISA = qw(Tie::Handle); sub TIEHANDLE { my $class = shift; my $clip = shift; return bless({clip => $clip}, $class); } sub PRINT { my $self = shift; ${$self->{clip}}->Set(@_); }

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

[Corion]: Mhmm. I'm writing a database export, and two supposedly identical files compress to different sizes... So either the order of rows is different (which would be OK) or something else is bad (which wouldn't be OK). I guess I have to test with smaller tables
