automatically copy output from text file

perlnoobster has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hi monks I was just wondering if the following would be possible: I run a script that generates a text file, all i require is for the output to be copied as soon as it's created instead of having to open the output text file and selecting all and copying the data. I hope that makes sense? Is it possible, if so how? Thank you :)

    Copied where?
      hello, on the clipboard, you know how you copy and paste text etc either by pressing ctrl+c or selecting the text and copying it by right clicking (default windows options) I was just wondering if the output could be "copied" into the clipboard as opposed to manually copying the text from the file via ctrl + C or right clicking and selecting copy i hope that makes sense?

[Discipulus]: Tanktalus my comment was about how to fork & join in tk?
[marioroy]: Oh, I've might of missed Discipulus's earlier response. I had gone to bed.
[Tanktalus]: ah, I don't even have the perlmonks site open in my browser :)
Tanktalus is chatting through his cbstats application :)
[marioroy]: Perl is so much fun.
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus i recently started a Meditation about marioroy's MCE suit of modules, but is even better to see a practical question answered than responses to my meditation
[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
